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.

This is definitely one of the best concert halls in the world. And the orchestra is just magnificent! We were listening to Mahler 1 and Prokofiev piano concert no.3 with Gatti and Daniil Trifonov. One if the best concerts I ever heard!

Likely the best sounding hall in Europe. Attended Mahler symph #1 and Prokofiev piano cto 3, with Daniil Trifonov, on May 9. Sitting behind the orchestra, I can see the conductor, Daniel Gatti, face-on. A superb orchestra in the Mahler piece. Absolutely heavenly. They are...More

It was thrilling to sit in the choir (the section behind the orchestra) and watch the conductor enter the hall from just behind us. The featured work was a Bruckner symphony with a full complement of instruments and no fewer than three harps. I notice...More

Ive been to the city several times but have never been able to see a show there. So just to see how beautiful the building is can be worth the walk to see it and take a pic.

From my personal perspective, a must visit because the name appears in the Paul Mc Cartney and Wings song "Rock Show" and I have been a lifelong Mc Cartney fan in Australia !!! Very interesting and rewarding visit.

Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part
of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh
Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed

need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the
Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark,
the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand
connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping

Wednesday Lunch Concerts are free. They are not in the main concert hall and they do not feature headliners, but they're very enjoyable. Obviously, you have to check their schedule to see who is performing in the main hall... More

Hi Marsha! You don't have to be very fancy, but don't show up in jeans. It's not that they won't let you in, but you will feel uncomfortable. Wear a dress with heels, or pants with a nice jacket. Hope you will enjoy yourself!

I would be wearing something elegant (for example something in black) but it is also fine if you wear jeans. Dutch people are very practical when it comes to fashion
