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.

Free Concerts on a wednesday at lunchtime

Went a free concert. Need to be there by 12pm. Only 440 seats and very popular. This concert featured young talent and was wonderful.

A world class, yet intimate, concert hall for a world class orchestra. A sense of history and fine listening. Can't miss classical music experience.

We took the English tour of the Concertgebouw. Our tour guide, Sebastian, was excellent. He provided a complete tour with great information. This is truly a beautiful building that is worth visiting.

I was lucky to visit Amsterdam during a very prolific week at the Concertgebouw! I was able to attend the Bach Society's recital, then a concert by the Concertgebow Orquestra and finally a wonderful concert by the Concertgebouw Orchestra conducted by Orozco Estrada. What a joy! If you are in Amsterdam do not miss it!

We saw a soprano perform Shubert. It was mostly an Amsterdam audience. Just a great experience for music lovers.

We turned up around 10 minutes before a concert so didn't get to experience much of it, but the bar was well staffed and there seemed to be good facilities and staffing throughout. If you're watching a show there (we watched a modern classical concert) then you won't be disappointed. Excellent seating arrangements and great acoustics.

Made the journey out to Amsterdam specifically for this gig as part of the Holland Festival. Lovely venue and after getting into there we realised it was complimentary drinks before and after the show. The venue is lovely and not as big as i thought it was going to be. The acoustics in the hall were great and the volume... More

Main Concerthall of Amsterdam. Beautiful building, spectacular art (depending on the programming obviously, so check out there website & cross-check with Youtube/Google).
