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.

“Brahms Concert”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

A delight. A building that makes one sigh. Do spoil yourself and go to at least one concert. Avoid row 1 and 2. Pillar obscures view.

“Jazz Club in the Concert Hall”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

We attended a one hour progressive jazz concert in the basement jazz club that was great. The room was beautiful and the tickets included drinks at the bar until the show started. Very personable performers who interacted with the audience.

“West Side Story - what a bunch of amateurs”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

Can't complain too much as it was a free lunchtime concert, but the performance was more like a university performing arts student concert. Glad we didn't pay for this show!

“Lucky to feel this amazing acoustics”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

Upon arrival in Amsterdam, I grabbed a ticket for the last concert of the Robeco Summer Night Festival. Repertoire included Prokofiev's symphony no.1, Elgar's cello concerto and Rachmaninoff's symphony dances. It was thrilling to have a symphony, cello concerto and Bach's Sarabande as an encore all at the same time in this beautiful concert hall. The following day I even enjoyed vocals at the showcase of opera "Armide" as a part of Uitmarkt, which made the special experience to spoil my ears. A must for any music lover!
