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.

under clean Beethoven concert on February 9 with visible on stage, delectable dirigent.Veel less was the talk of advance by fairly silly questions to the conductor. The interviewer had the conversation apparently not well prepared. Even a blunder when he came to Fisher informed it that the 7th symphony no slow movement in which the conductor had him prompt and... More

Amazing tour of auditorium, conductor's and soloist's prep rooms, piano storage facilities, and attic from which the lights and mikes are lowered.

We dined in the restaurant before the concert which was fun - a good meal although not really cheap. as usual, not enough toilets for ladies! Accoustics in the hall really good.

Seeing Rembrandt masterpieces 'in the flesh' was amazing. Also particularly enjoyed the dollshouses. Layout was clear, with floors and rooms all numbered, great if pushed for time. However, signposting to the Museum from centre, not so good!

I could not believe the perfect quality of sound in Concertgebouw. It was as if Gershwin had written just for performance here. It was Gershwin like I never heard it before and never will again. Overwhelming and perfect.

Went to a concert at the Concertgebouw (orchestra plus solo singers). The acoustics are just amazing - probably among the best of any concert hall anywhere in the world. The ground floor (stalls) seating is not tiered (all seats are at the same level and one row directly below the other), so nearer the back the view might be restricted... More

Neighborhood 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.
