Description:

The Royal Concertgebouw is one of the world's most famous concert halls...

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. Due to the popularity of these concerts it is recommended to arrive at least 45min before the concert.

This Concert Hall is directly across the roadway from the Museum Square. The café inside is quiet, clean and a friendly place to sit and watch the world go by. By chance there was a noon hour concert and the recital hall was filled to capacity. It is a gorgeous building, close to everything and right on the bus line... More

The Concertgebouw orchestra is always a delight to listen to. The quality of its abilities and performance, combined with the acoustics of the theater are unique for music lovers. Go for the best!

We went here as a party of 6 for my husband's special birthday and we all had such a great time. It had been his life long ambition to visit here and to see the best orchestra in the world on his actual birthday weekend was such a treat. Our ticket also included drinks so there was no made charge... More

I looked to see what was programmed at The Concertgebouw during my stay, booked online, and printed my ticket. All very easy. The concert (Lalo and Mussorgsky) was first class. The hall is magnificent, the acoustic excellent, and the seat comfortable.

We enjoyed our evening at the philharmonic, and having a drink before the performance and one at the interval included in the ticket was nice. Unlike in the UK, the conductor doesn't speak at all, so the concert is just music. There is an app which gives information about the pieces etc. although this is currently only available in Dutch.... More

We attended a concert last week. Bought tickets online, in advance, which was a good thing because the concert sold out. The acoustics are unbelievable. Very easy to see from any vantage point because the stage is elevated. Free wine at intermission!

One day in a week (it was Wednesday when I was there but make sure to check if there has been any changes), there is a free lunchtime concert by a professional orchestra. Make sure to include this in your itinerary and plan around it because it is worth it! It only lasts about half an hour at noon, without... More

Every person who visits Amsterdam must go to this and go to a concert. It was one of the best orchestras I have ever heard and I only wished we had more time to go to it every day of our visit.

Neighbourhood Profile
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 destinations of PC Hooftstraat, Van Baerlestraat, Cornelis Schuytstraat, and Jacob Obrechtstraat, where even the shop window displays are of museum quality. In the evenings, when the museums close and the daytrippers head home, the area becomes a quiet oasis of calm with a sophisticated and urbane tone.
