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.

“Wonderful sound, classical concert hall”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

Don't bother with the tour of the concert house, unless you're a real music buff. While it was interesting, we had a guide who was practically clueless.

“Amazing night out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

This is quite an experience - the acoustics, like others have said, are out of this world - if I closed my eyes, I could imagine the orchestra right in front of me playing just for me. One of the best birthday presents my husband has got me for a long time.

“Superb lunchtime concert”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

Wednesday 12.30pm rehearsal concert for free. Be there about an hour before as it gets busy quickly. The standard and the acoustics are superb. The building is wonderful and the decor is beautiful. Tram no3 stops outside Concertgebouw from Centraal Stn which is where we went from. This is something that should be done in more locations.
