What a lovely way to send a Sunday morning. The music was so beautiful and relaxing and then to head upstairs to a lovely brunch. Well worth a visit.

Three of us attended a Sunday morning concert in the main hall. The venue is worth a visit in its own right but with the addition of excellent music it was a brilliant experience. The violin soloist was outstanding and we later found out she...More

It's an amazing building with concerts all nights and on weekends also matinee shows. Look up the programme online and order unsold last minute tickets with a very attractive discount. I just love this place for its grand architecture. It is truly one of the...More

This review is not about the performances, which, I am sure, are great. It is a warning you will not find on the Concertgebouw site. The Concertgebouw offers free Lunchconcerts, which in itself is really great. The one I wanted to attend was on Wednesday,...More

My cousin and I attended the August 28, 2017 summer at the symphony concert. The hall itself is beautiful and despite having seats further back on the floor, we still had a decent view (since the orchestra is elevated). My biggest complaint was how hot...More

I was there for one of the special series of summer concerts sponsored by Robeco. It was a National (in fact very international, 17 nations represented) Youth orchestra, but very accomplished and brilliantly directed. Program of Wagner (Tannhauser), Korngold (Violin Concerto) and Stravinsky (Petrouchka). Great!

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

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
