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.

Depending on the date you go there are usually activities, concerts or other things of interest. I recommend to investigate and visit it when there is any of these. It's a spectacular building, it's worth it

Some days there is a tour of the Concertgebouw. Fascinating way to spend a few hours, and learn much about this esteemed concert hall and it's interesting history.

I was lucky enough to get tickets to a classical concert. We had a really lovely evening. The orchestra and the music were wonderful. Something to take home with us.

This historic concert hall has the most amazing accoustics. Of many concert halls experienced this is superb. Listened to a full orchestra playing Tchaikowsky each instrument could be picked out. For music lovers in Amsterdam, if you can get tickets do go.

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
museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you
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

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
