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.

Located near the museum areas, this attraction can be easily reached by tram 2 or 5. Its beautiful facades make it look like a palace! I looked around, took pictures, and inquired what shows I could watch during my stay in Amsterdam.

Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
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
