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.

Free Lunchtime Concerts are held every Wednesday afternoon (except for the months of July and August) at 12.30 p.m. in the Main Hall or the Recital Hall. The concerts vary from public rehearsals by the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, to chamber music performances by young up-and-coming artists. Get there at least an hour early to make sure you get in!

We bought our tickets online for what turned out to be a sold out show, found the hall and building amazing, complimentary drinks in the interval and getting to and from the venue easy. Would recommend.

You never forget your first time. Sitting in the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam waiting for its resident orchestra to start a concert when you have never experienced the hall's astonishing acoustics before is a dream come true for any epicure of orchestral music.
Since its first concert in 1888, the Concertgebouw Orchestra has been special. Resident in the opulent Amsterdam Concertgebouw (Dutch for concert hall), the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra has cultivated a sound that combines velvety smoothness with the steely virtuosity of 120 of the world’s best musicians.
Me and my wife were the youngest people in that area:-)

A fabulous concert by the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra under Nikolaus Harnoncourt. This rarely performed symphony was a real treat. Our seats were on the center balcony, with excellent view and outstanding acoustics. A complimentary drink was included in the ticket price; a nice touch! Our only quibble was that one has to buy a full program book (5 euros) to read about the evening's program.
