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.

This famous, beautiful hall is home to a great orchestra, the Royal Concertgebouw. Tickets are expensive, which is par for the course with a major European orchestra. The fabled acoustics were better - nearly ideal in fact - in the rear balcony than in the...More

From the first note, it was clear that this would be an exceptional musical experience. The concert hall is beautiful and rather intimate, with justly celebrated acoustics. There may be no bad seat in the house with respect to listening to the music. The orchestra...More

Thanks to the high stage, our expensive seats at the side of the front stalls gave us poor sight lines. Mariss Jansons and the Concertgebouw Orchestra were splendid, though.

Hi Marsha! You don't have to be very fancy, but don't show up in jeans. It's not that they won't let you in, but you will feel uncomfortable. Wear a dress with heels, or pants with a nice jacket. Hope you will enjoy yourself!

I would be wearing something elegant (for example something in black) but it is also fine if you wear jeans. Dutch people are very practical when it comes to fashion
