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.

  • The Amsterdam Concertgebouw is a wonderful place to visit on a trip to Amsterdam. The interior of the concert hall is gorgeous and the music is fantastic! If you happen to have time on Wednesdays around lunch time (check the website because sometimes the days change) I definitely recommend taking time to hear the free lunch time concert. On their website it's recommended to arrive around 11:30 so you can line up for a free ticket for the lunchtime concert. I will say that the first time I went there were so many people that when the lines were let into the concert hall we weren't given tickets. However, the second time I attended the lunch time concert it was for a smaller hall for a smaller crowd therefore they let us in the building a little after 11:30 and handed out free tickets. We were then let into the smaller concert hall near 12:30. Children are welcome and lots of families bring their kids. It's an experience for everyone that you shouldn't miss!

  • One of the most beautiful concert halls I have ever visited. Great sound and acoustics. Very helpful and friendly staff. Definitely recommended for a great concert experience, regardless of the music genre.

  • Great place to do a backstage tour. The guide was very knowledgeable and we got to see a lot more of the building than usual tours allow.

  • Top level music, location, musicians... The Concertgebouw is one of a kind, from architecture to location, from class to atmosphere. I visited a couple times, last time for the 130 anniversary of the orchestra. Bach. Not to be missed.

  • Verdi Requiem heard from behind the first trumpet, great experience in this magnificent hall. Many thanks
