Owner description: 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.

We loved the Mirror Hall Restaurant with its pillars and chandeliers in the Concertgebouw - a beautiful, elegant venue for a special occasion dinner prior to a concert by one of the great symphony orchestras of the world.. Interesting food, presented and served by friendly, courteous waiters made this a never to be forgotten experience.

This was a highlight of our trip, we enjoyed dinner before the concert in the mirrored hall, at 35 euros this was great value in a wonderful setting and got our night off to a great start, the concert with the Toronto symphony was amazing and the violin concerto was astounding with a long standing ovation, wonderful acoustics .a truly memorable evening, and your concert ticket includes a drink of your choice in the interval. How sensible is that, if you come to this cityand can be tickets Go.

Thank god fro trip advisor as we never would have known about the lunchtime concert. Arrived from Melbourne, Australia in May and got the oppurtunity to attend one of the lunchtime concerts. Was blown away with the three piece who performed and the venue is magical. Kepp up the great work and make sure you get there 30-60 minutes early or you will miss out.

I attended one of the free lunchtime concerts and really enjoyed it. The concert was showcasing the amazing organ which is in the main concert space, and the acoustics were very impressive. A great free Amsterdam experience.
