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.

The acoustics of the Concertgebouw are legendary but need to be experienced first hand to be truly appreciated. We experienced the presentation of operatic arias with full orchestral backing which aptly demonstrated the beauty and subtle nuance of the music presented in a manner far above that I had experienced in other proclaimed concert halls elsewhere in the world.

This concert house is one of the best in Europe. The acoustic is perfect and you can chose between the magnificent big room or opt for a more cozy concert in the small room. Also take advantage of free rehearsals on wed noon!

We attended a concert by the amazing Izaline Calister, an Afro-Carribean fusion jazz singer in the Kleine Saal, a small concert venue that is perfect for this kind of intimate concert. The contrast of the stately room and eclectic, energetic music made for an unforgettable musical experience. The lesson is the Concertgebouw isn't just for classical music fans.

Attended a concert here on 31 July, the concert itself (Mozart recital) was excellent but the building is certainly worth visiting - absolutely beautiful, inside and out.

As a passionate lover of classical music I consider this place a "temple" for listening to music - an astonishing concert hall! I tried to have a guided tour in the building, but unfortunately it was sold out. But this is of course a place for listening to music and I had the great pleasure to listen to the Radio... More

Went here for a classical piano concert. Apart from the concert being amazing, the building is truly beautiful. It has a very classic character and it is very well-maintained. The Concertgebouw offers lots of concerts (mostly classic, but also more modern) and sometimes offers these at very acceptable prices.

Even if you are not going for a concert there, you should at least try to visit the hall, both inside and outside.

Immensely enjoyed a string quartet from France here recently. Was my first visit but was extremely memorable with great company and incredibly vibrant acoustics. Would highly recommend a visit if you are travelling to Amsterdam. Was slightly smaller than I expected, however that did not detract from the enjoyment, but rather enhanced it.

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.
