Owner description: 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.

We heard Beethoven's Ninth Symphony conducted by the legendary Bernard Haitink. Great seats, wonderful concert.

We went to a concert purely by an accident, since we were sure it was sold out. The grand hall is beautiful and the concert was perfect. We enjoyed it very, very much. If you are a classical music lover, be sure to visit this place. They also have different concerts during the day.

Its a very beautiful building in the dutch city of amsterdam. Off and on there concerts are being organised. A prestigious place for the dutch. It is nicely kept and maintained. These two buildings the Concertgebouw and the Rijksmuseum are just opposite to each other. In between there is a beautiful park which is also nicely maintained.
