Great concerts you can see here, but for a nice coffee, some snacks and an amazing view over the water, this is also a great spot! Sometimes very large cruise ships pass by and in the summer the terrace is lovely!

A short walk away from the Central Station, here you can find musical events and arts/exhibitions. Also cafe/restaurant available. Great to combine it with a walk along the pier.

On the website you can buy tickets for a special tour around Muziekgebouw 't Ij. This encompasses a lunch and a 2 hour tour of the building. The lunch was perfect and started off great. However the tour was simply not good. Even though we had a tour operator which passionately told us about the place she simply did not... More

Beautifully architectural design, good concert hall for classic, modern and jazz-lovers, including a good restaurant and a restaurant-bar with a spectacular view on the Amsterdam harbour

This concert hall is an acoustical gem. It is versatile as a space, with three different ceiling sections that you can adjust in several different ways. The floor can be even to the stage or terraced. It's incredible as you can be assured you'll be enjoying whatever event at its optimum acoustic. Restaurant is so-so.

My husband and I were staying in the Movenpick Hotel and thought we would while away a couple of hours on the deck outside the Muziekgebouw's restaurant on our last day, between checking out and waiting for our train to the airport. The outside area is superb, with normal tables as well as large "sofas" (made of a sort of... More

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
