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.

“A wonderful Venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

We were fortunate enough to attend a performance of Mozarts Requiem conducted by the irrepressible Pieter Jan Leusink. What a privilege in this magnificent venue.

“Some culture in your Amsterdam”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2014

Typically for the older generation, the concert gebouw has a lot to offer in regards to musical splendour. Tickets can be pricey, although students get a discount and other yearly memberships can give you a significant discount. For classical music lovers, this is a must visit!

“What a lovely Saturday afternoon!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014

Attended a philharmonic on a whim. Great discount for under 30s and as part of your ticket you received drinks before and after and free public transport. Such a fun and different activity to do!
