Owner description: 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.

“Concertgebouw”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

Beautiful concert hall and top notch facilities. I went to an evening concert with a half-price, last minute ticket from the Tourist Office opposite Centraal. What a bargain for Nederlands Philharmonic! And easy access to and from my hotel via the trams.

What a building. Good acoustics even in cheap seats at the back. You get a complimentary drink in the interval too!

“Lovely concert venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012

Beautiful old concert hall with a very decent cafe. I enjoyed a Mozart recital, and particularly appreciated the free glass of wine during the interval! Note that Amsterdam restaurants close early, so eat beforehand or you will go to bed hungry!
