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.

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.

Actually we have visited the Concergebouw several times and with utmost confidence i can state that we enjoyed the performances so much. It's a beautiful building, the environment itself already ensures you about a lovely evening. Performances are well organized, experienced artists.

We attended the free lunch time concert and we're delighted to get excellent seats for a lunch time concert. The tickets are allocated on a first come basis and the concert was "sold out" well before the time so it pays to go early. The build up to the doors opening was abuzz with anticipation. If you are only in... More

We are concert-goers at home, had a free evening, so tried for tickets to an orchestra concert at the Concertgebouw one morning for the same evening. We were able to get seats in the section above the stage and behind the orchestra, which was a first for us, and we enjoyed it very much. Sitting between and above the trombones... More

We were lucky enough to get tickets to a string Quartet in the first row of the balcony. Our tickets included coffee or a drink before the show as well as at intermission. The sound quality inside is incredible and the music was sensational! It makes for a great evening activity following the museums and having dinner beforehand. Very close... More

My daughter and I attended a Wednesday night concert on our first night in Amsterdam. The concert hall was beautiful and every seat was filled. We enjoyed the music, architecture and our vantage point from BEHIND the main stage. It was wonderful to look out at the hall and watch from behind the orchestra as they played. Great acoustics, too.

I highly recommend the guided tour of the Concertgebouw. It cost €10. Our guide Sabine was fantastic. She led the tour in English and German. She could answer all of our questions and was just lovely. It should be noted there are stairs on a metal spiral staircase. High heels and wheelchairs beware! At the end of the tour, we... More

We booked the concert long before we left home. We had no real idea what we were to experience. We had seats up behind and to the side of the orchestra. Wow! What a great place to see the musicians in action, and also to see the conductor's face. The music was sublime. A terrific experience. Musicians: Koninklijk Concertgebouworkest François-Xavier...

Treat yourself to a night of 'the old' in this charming, beautiful concert hall; with a world class symphony. And the drinks are free before and during intermission: included in the price of your tix.

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.
