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.

We usually use the hop on hop bus tours, but by far the boats, are the best way to see the city. The attractions were easy access and the boat stops were close by.

The breakfast selection is very limited. However, very good coffee and the location is just outstanding and across the street from the Stedlijk Museum. Great place to meet, read and ruminate on the art you have seen or are about to see. The windows also make for great people watching.

The concertgebouw is one of the best concert halls in the world. I heard a fantastic concert by the NY Philharmonic, who were also pleased with the fact that they could play there!

We were hoping to get into the free rehearsals the Concertgebouw hosts on Wednesdays. We got there about 30 minutes in advance, but the line was already long and we couldn't get into the concert hall. A lot of people were disappointed and left, but those who stayed back were able to watch the performance on a tv screen and... More

If you're a music lover, this mythic concert hall is definitely worth a visit. The Sunday morning concert we attended was packed and the music, Haydn and CPE Bach, performed by the Stuttgarter Kammerorchester under Matthias Foremny and a young Durch 'cellist, Quirine VIersen, cheerful and beautifully played. Excellent website which takes you on a virtual tour of the hall... More

The music was quite contemporary, not unlike jazz. The smaller venue at the Concertgebouw was filled with an enthusiastic crowd. We were awed by the two young talented musicians we had never heard of before: the idea of listening to a harpist drew us to the concert when we heard about it, and we got the last two seats: fortunately,...

Not been to a concert though wandered around the amazing lobby and, of course, took pictures of the exterior which is fabulous. It is located at the southern end of museum plein and is very photogenic.
