Went there to see and listen to GUUS, for a second time. good show (says more about the artists than the location...) But okay, Carre is a great place, old grandeur totally refurbished, easy to access and comfortable. If they still offer the tours, you should book and see how everything works on the other side of the curtain.

The musical Pippin with the all American original cast is a very entertaining musical being performed in the beautiful theater Carré in Amsterdam. The combination of a story e told, the singing and the acrobatics makes it a great show. Definitely worth visiting.

Went for a concert and the theatre is in beautiful condition and is a very attractive building that is easy to get into with very friendly staff. Easy to recommend it for what it is.

I already reviewed the theatre upon seeing Finzi Pasca's "la verità" here. In that occasion I gave it 5 stars, which is what it deserves since it it a breathtaking facility. My boyfriend booked some nice seats to see the famous Christmas circus show here last week, and we were rather disappointed by the experience. The acts were mostly mediocre.... More

This is one of the most, if not the most, beautiful theatre in The Netherlands. It is a beautiful historical building with a classic U-shape. We went here to see the traditional Christmas circus - now without the wild animals. The quality of the show, in combination with the superb atmosphere, was very high. If you are in town and...

We were in Carré for the 'Winter Circus'. (which was great by the way) Carré is a very romantic theatre with real 'lodge rooms'. The interior design is absolutely fabulous. This theatre can easily match with the best theatres on Broadway!

Staying in Plantage & the East

Neighborhood Profile
Plantage & the East
The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides visitors with the chance to imagine the city that Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house) while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s oldest (and still best kept) zoos, and Hortus Botanicus, one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world. It's also an ideal setting for the Dutch outpost of St Petersburg’s Hermitage.
