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.

Great classical concert on their summer series. We also ate ahead of the concert in their cafe. It is crowded, but the food was good. Also before and during the intermission they serve free drinks (wine or non-alcoholic) which was a fun surprise.

If you love classical music, a concert at the renowned Concertgebouw is a must. It is easy to buy tickets on-line. The box office service is also very good; when I had to cancel an earlier visit because of illness, I e-mailed them and they kindly gave me a refund. The acoustics in the hall are everything they are reputed... More

Last minute seating in a world-class concert hall is surprisingly cheap. This is an intimate, but delicously 'warm' and colourful sounding place to hear an old favourite, or something new.

Went along at 1pm to buy tickets the same day for an evening concert with my daughter. The box office staff were very anxious to let me know that if I came back at 7.15pm my daughter (being under 30!) would qualify for a 15 Euro ticket (for any seat category) . The lady obviously thought I was mad even... More

Every room in this building is equally gorgeous, the musicians are of outstanding quality. Always a wonderful evening. The music and brunch combination for Easter is really nice as well.

Beautiful setting for a symphony orchestra and delightful to hear an orchestra without electronic amplification. Small enough for many excellent seats. I was attending alone so I was able to get a row 10 isle seat when only the back 6 rows were available 2 weeks before the concert. --advantage of a single ticket. I was thrilled with the program...

Although I'm far from an expert in these things, I've learned that this building - built quite some decades ago - was designed and built in such a way that the acoustics are extremely good. For those who love classical music, it must be a pleasure for you ears to listen. The outside and inside of the building are extremely... 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.
