The Royal Concertgebouw (Dutch: Koninklijk Concertgebouw, pronounced [ˌkoːnɪnklək kɔnˈsɛrtxəbʌu]) is a concert hall in Amsterdam, Netherlands. The Dutch term "concertgebouw" translates into English as "concert building". Its superb acoustics place it among the finest concert halls in the world, along with Boston's Symphony Hall and the Musikverein in Vienna.
In celebration of the building's 125th anniversary, Queen Beatrix bestowed the royal title "Koninklijk" upon the building on 11 April 2013, as she had on the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra upon its 100th in 1988.

  • Most Wednesdays @ 12:30 they have a free production. About a half hour long. The day my wife and I went it was great. Highly recommended

  • Great venue for classical and modern music alike. The seating in the main hall is simply horrendous, though: the seats are positioned in one line straight behind the ones in front of them, so everybody sees the back of a head instead of the stage. The simple solution would be to offset each row by half a seat.
  • Such a beautiful place, with a great park next to all the famous museums. Go there on a sunny day, you won't regret it!
