About

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.

Top ways to experience Concertgebouw and nearby attractions

The area
Address
Neighborhood: 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.

    Hits all the right notes!!
    I have visted this concert hall on many occasions and travel a long way to do so. It is a beautiful hall and the acoustics are wonderful. The variety of concerts throughout the year is very impressive. The staff are very helpful and the seats are comfortable.

    A must do in Amsterdam for concert lovers
    Concert was fantastic. Seats -4 th row orchestra were inexpensive for where they were as compared to Lincoln center. Dinner at Lies beforehand was superb and we just walked internally to the concert. Price fixed three course dinner is highly recommended.

    Christmas is coming soon!!!
    I like to come here for a concert every now and then, sometimes alone or otherwise with my partner. To sit here, enjoying a nice concert, i find it to be a great and wonderful cultural experience. I would definitely recommend this place, purely as a devoted classical music fan. For me personally, the classical music scene in Amsterdam is one of the highlights of this, if i may say so, really great and still very open minded world-class city!!!

I’ve heard radio broadcasts from and recordings made in this spectacular hall my whole life, so it was a great pleasure to attend. Top musicians perform there and a number of Dutch orchestras. We could hardly stop gazing around. Book tickets way ahead. Not far from the major museums, and lots of restaurants are nearby so it really completes a day.

What an amazing idea. The Concertgebouw holds weekly lunchtime concerts in the recital hall for FREE! The performers present a number of items before presenting that evening, I believe. The building itself is beautiful and the music we experienced was divine. Before or after the show you can always grab a drink at the café that is inside the building.

We were there on a Wednesday and were able to get tickets to the free lunch concert in the small hall. Artists from the conservatory I believe chamber music with a updated interpretation. Excellent! We went on tour of building which was fantastic our guide had just come back from vacation and so knowledgeable. Another gem and acoustically perfect. One of only three concert venues which are perfect.

If the opportunity arises a visit to a performance at the ConcertGebouw is worthwhile.
The hall has great acoustics, comfortable seating and excellent food & beverage facilities. The architecture and decoration mark it out as a classic concert venue.

We went for the Sunday morning concert.
One coffee/tea included in the tickets.
The hall was stunning, the orchestra amazing, the director swept us away. Great selection of concertos. Definitely the best experience in Amsterdam for me.
Had I know, I would've booked it for 2 visits during the week we were in the city.
If you are a fan of classical music, even if you don't know so much about it. Come here!

I you can't (or prefer not to) get tickets for a "proper" concert, look for the free "Lunchtime Concerts". Once a week for 30 minutes, and you can see the inside of the building. (Need to make a reservation, but our tickets weren't even checked)

Try the Sunday morning Concert from 11:00-12:00am. A great wakeup ritual and an impressive start of your day. Afterwards visit one of the many museums in the are like the van Gogh or Rijksmuseum. Your entrance ticket gives you 50% discount.
