I have, for a very long time, heard about the outstanding acoustical properties of this venerable old hall. And after attending a performance there I am convinced it more than lived up to its reputation. The Dresden State Orchestra, in a performance with soloist Matthias...More

This is a beautiful facility. We lined up to get free lunch concert tickets on a Wednesday, and afterwards did the tour- 10 Euros, I think. It was very interesting, and we got to see areas you would not normally get to visit.

We were in Amsterdam for Christmas 2016 and we got tickets to a concert on Christmas morning. It was absolutely perfect. Beautiful concert hall, incredible performance, and a memory I will cherish forever.

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

I am trying to buy tickets for a concert in Feb 2017. The website won't let me choose my own seats. I don't like the seats it is choosing for me. It says you have to create an account to buy tickets online. I thought this may be the reason I can't choose my own seats. However, when I try to create an account it keeps telling me my phone number is not valid but does not give any indication of how it is wrong or what the format is supposed to be. There are not many tickets left and we really want to come to the concert.

I had a problem myself with the website. I emailed them and in less than one day they responded, reserving a great seat for me. They are polite and so courteous. Enjoy the show!
