Outstanding Modern Concert Hall
Jan 2020
This is an outstanding modern concert hall. The Grote Saal (Big Hall) is an excellent venue for soloists and chamber music. Acoustics are superb. The only problem is that the seats step up only every two rows, so it's much easier to see over tall Dutch people if you are in an even numbered row.

Music Building on the IJ
Sep 2019 • Family
Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ
(English: "Music Building on the IJ")

is the main concert hall for contemporary classical music on the IJ in Amsterdam, Netherlands. The building opened in 2005 and is located above the IJtunnel, a ten-minute walk from Amsterdam Centraal station. The building was designed by Danish architects 3XN. The Bimhuis is part of and partly integrated in the Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ.

Trendy venue to experience classical music
Dec 2018 • Solo
The Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ concert hall seems much less known than the world-famous Concertgebouw but this venue definitely worth visiting for those who are into classical music, particularly modern one. There is a wonderful view of Amsterdam from the glass-walled foyer. They offer free drinks in the intermission (which is also the case in Concertgebouw). The only problem that may be encountered by those who do not speak Dutch is that their site is almost completely in Dutch and buying tickets is a hassle. But once you get through it you will surely enjoy what you hear and see in this modern hall.

Look back at the city and have a drink
Jun 2018 • Friends
A great little adventure taking the fast, free and frequent ferry located behind the Station. Sat outside on the theatre’s outdoor terrace. Good bottle of reasonably priced Chablis and a couple of typically Dutch snacks. It was a lovely warm sunny day with great views across to the city, chilling away from the bustle.

Concert halls matches medical congress
May 2018 • Business
Not so many congresses, including medical congress, which took place in a music concert hall! Although it was the idea of some people in the organising committee, it is the venue that made matters providing unique experience for the attendees. It was just great experience of learning inside a high quality of room acoustic.
The other best point that makes the venue one of the best spots is the big terrace right in front of its foyer. The Amstel river on your view!

Beautiful building.
Jan 2018 • Friends
Muziekgebouw Aan t'Ij is a wonderful looking music venue that if you visit the Delirium Cafe as we did you cannot fail see.
It's a modern building on the river that looks amazing and although I never took in a concert I most certainly marvelled at the great looking structure.
Easy to locate ,tram number 26 to stop Muziekgebouw Bimhuis drops you off right by this music venue which is found on Piet Heinkade.
Well worth checking out.

Lovely place to visit for a music performance. View over the IJ is great, goog facilities and easy parking (Piet Hein garage). If you visit a concert you can park for 10 euros for 4 hours!! The restaurant is good as well.

Visiting this building is perfect for enjoying modern architecture. The congress facilities are perfect. Take a look at the backside of the central station.

New architecture and music
Oct 2015 • Friends
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!
