“Great acoustics!”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

It was my first time visiting De Doelen. It was during songbird festival, a 2 day festival with singer-songwriters. In different rooms/halls were artists performing. The acoustics were great, especially in the big hall. It was a bit chilly and windy inside. Staff was kind and helpful. And it is only 10 minutes walk from central station and located in the centre of Rotterdam.
Definitely worth a visit!!

“Super high quality music and one of the best orchestras in the world!!!!”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

I have been to this concert room many many times. Each year I have a couple of series: baroque, vocal, rotterdam philharmonic orchestra etc.
The quality is very good. The rotterdam philharmonic orchestra is one of the best orchestras in the world. The conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin is always a pleasure to listen to. The last conductor Gergiev is in my opinion one of the greatest conductors of this time. Each year they celebrate his Gergiev festival.
Highly recommended!!!
When you go to Rotterdam, you must visit the wonderful Doelen concert room and if possible the rotterdam philharmonic orchestra!!!!

“Music!”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

God, how I love this place. I do not comehere often enough, but the (mostly classical) music is magnificent (also due to the fact that the acoustics are amazing). Check out the different prices, because sometimes you can get tickets for 5 euro p.p.!

“Great place to get Pelgrim beers”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

The Pelgrim Brewery is in Delfthaven, but if you don't fancy a trek out there this is the place to get their draught beers, Doelencafe has 3 Pelgrim on draught plus a good selection of others. This bar is located close to Rotterdam Centraal. There is a large indoor seating area and a sizeable outdoor area as well. Always drop in here for an aperitif or two, but have never eaten in here.

“De Doelen one of the big ten in the world”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

De Doelen concert building has everything for her visitors, Great seats with nowhere restricted view, perfect acoustics. All the facilities from ticket office, lounges, coffee, tea and champagne- service until the rest rooms are very well maintained. Every member of staaf is a host to the vistors of De Doelen.
Perfect far program from calssic to jazz, but moest of all the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra!!
