Welcome to Concertgebouw


The Concertgebouw (literally, 'concert building') is one of Amsterdam's top-rated tourist attractions, and is widely regarded to be one of the finest concert halls in the world - easily comparable to the Vienna Musikverein and Moscow Conservatory. Not only is the Concertgebouw a building of rare elegance and beauty, but it features a fantastic resident orchestra and peerless acoustics - making it an unmissable experience for classical music lovers on holiday in Amsterdam. The Concertgebouw puts on about 900 concerts a year to an audience of over 800,000 people - so tourists looking to take in some high culture will be spoilt for choice in terms of what to see. For those on tight budgets, bear in mind that being in possession of an I Amsterdam card can get you up to a 25% discount on ticket prices, and that free concerts are often given on Fridays. There are also highly recommended 'behind the scenes' tours of the graceful 19th century building, operating on Saturdays and Mondays.
