Concertgebouw - Review
The literal translation of the name of this place amounts to “concert building”. Established in late 1886, this privately owned concert building was opened for the public in 1888 with a recital of some of the most famous works of Back, Wagner, Handel and Beethoven. The recital was carried out with over five hundred singers and a one hundred twenty piece orchestra.
The Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra is the resident orchestra of this landmark location and is considered to be one of the premier orchestras in the world. This concert building is extremely well known for its impeccable neo classical design and internal acoustics for which it is considered to be one of the, if not the best concert location in the world.
- Do find out the timings for recitals and make it a point to pre book your tickets as the demand for recital tickets are quite high throughout the year.

Concertgebouw, Amsterdam Reviews
Beautiful old concert hall in a central location. It has atmosphere and style. During intermissions there are drinks at the bars which are usually included in the ticket price depending on the concert. Apart from the large hall there is also a nice smaller hall for a more private setting. Definitely recommended if you enjoy classical music.
High quality classical concerts. Not expensive. Not nessary to know Dutch language. Don't be afaid for the dressing code. It isn't necessary to go very well dressed.
Acoustically amazing! A real treat if you want the best sound almost anywhere. Great value
One of the most beautiful concert halls of the world. Also well know for its excellent acoustic properties
One of my favorite places in the Netherlands. One of the first places I visit in Holland. I enjoyed hundreds of the best concerts and symphonies of the composers in the world! Every Wednesday there’s a free lunch concert for everyone in Amsterdam. Easy to come to the building via trains, busses and trams!
