Attended concert with my wife. Mainly Mozart, Sibelius and Beethoven. Bit disappointed at the performance of Beethoven quartet opus 135 which was performed by a much larger group of instruments and hence ruined the character of the work from our point of view. Nevertheless this is a wonderful venue with great accoustic and lovely surroundings. The restaurant and waiting areas... More

We were lucky to attend a free chamber music concert in the smaller hall there, which was lovely and intimate. Although I wasn't crazy about the repertoire (all contemporary music) the young performers were energetic and enthusiastic, and it was a nice way to spend an hour!

Recently we attended a concert in this magnificent Concert Hall by the New York Philharmonic Orchestra. Fabulous setting and brilliant orchestra. What an unforgettable experience. Even the drinks before the concert and at the interval are included in the price....what a brilliant offer and how it speeded up the waiting time for drinks.

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 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
