The Royal Concertgebouw is one of the world's most famous concert halls renowned for its exceptional acoustics. With 700 concerts a year the Concertgebouw offers a varied programme featuring leading international musicians, orchestras, and conductors. The hall functions as a home base for the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, one of the very best orchestras in the world. Time and time again, critics have lauded its unique sound, which clearly stands out among thousands of others. Behind-the-scenes tours provide a look into the concert hall's rich history. There are scheduled tours three times a week and for groups available on request. From September to June at 12:30pm. Every Wednesday, there is a free 30 minute concert in the Concertgebouw.

Perfect, perfect, perfect. The best among the best. I would simply go back to Amsterdam to attend another concert there.

We saw Mei-Ann Chen conduct Debussy, Vasks Flute Concerto and Saint Saens' Organ Symphony. Only one word needed. Exquisite. Many curtain calls.

We went to a concert in the big room. Such an amazing place with such a big history. Also the paintings gallery while you wait for the musicians deserves a visit and a couple of drinks. Don't miss it.

Only good thing was free refreshments. Quality of performance was way under the bar. If we could have asked for a refund we would have.

Excellent concert (Ned Phil). Loved the idea of orchestra members with their instruments standing in the bars to talk to audience members before the performance. Disliked obligatory standing ovations - good but not that good, and don't like viewing others' backsides if you don't stand....More

If you take the time to attend an event here, you will be thrilled. The acoustics were incredible. It is an intimate hall and I️ suggest the balcony for the splendid view.

Saw Carmina Burana, orchestra was great and choir was spot on. In a perfect venue. Intimate feel, casual environment, friendly staff. Buy your tickets online.

Free entrance and an amazing concert by classical music students! If you don't mind waiting or queues than it is highly recommended.

Wow, what an evening with the royal orchestra. The atmosphere, the conductor and the singers. Every time I visit this concert hall I am impressed by the acoustic sounds and warm atmosphere of the interior

Was very fortunate to get last minute reasonably priced tickets to a Mahler concert with full orchestra. Super classical music in a beautiful old style hall. It was nice to see everyone dressing up too. Doesn't happen much nowaday. Nice touch of the ticket price...More

Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part
of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh
Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed
museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you
need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the
Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark,
the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand
connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping

Wednesday Lunch Concerts are free. They are not in the main concert hall and they do not feature headliners, but they're very enjoyable. Obviously, you have to check their schedule to see who is performing in the main hall... More

Hi Marsha! You don't have to be very fancy, but don't show up in jeans. It's not that they won't let you in, but you will feel uncomfortable. Wear a dress with heels, or pants with a nice jacket. Hope you will enjoy yourself!

I would be wearing something elegant (for example something in black) but it is also fine if you wear jeans. Dutch people are very practical when it comes to fashion
