Royal Concertgebouw Tours

Royal Concertgebouw
Amsterdam’s 19th-century Royal Concertgebouw (Concert Hall) boasts neoclassical architecture, three performance spaces, and an annual program of concerts and cultural events. Renowned for its acoustics, the hall has hosted many legendary performers over the years, and is home to the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra.

The Basics
Due to its prime position in front of the Rijksmuseum, the hall slots easily into most Amsterdam sightseeing schedules. Admire the building’s facade from afar during a hop-on hop-off bus tour, or opt for a more intimate glimpse into the venue on a behind-the-scenes tour. Package deals allow you to combine your visit with other must-do experiences, such as a canal cruise. To fully appreciate the acoustics and interior of the Royal Concertgebouw, attend one of more than 400 annual performances—though be sure to book concert tickets in advance to secure your seats in the popular venue.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Concertgebouw is a must-see for music and architecture lovers.
  • The hall is accessible to wheelchairs and strollers.
  • Unclaimed tickets for sold out shows are sometimes released for purchase on the day; visit the box office 1.5 hours ahead of the start time to check.

How to Get There
The Museumplein tram and bus stop is located directly outside the concert hall, and is served by trams number 12, 5, and 3. Hop-on hop-off buses also stop nearby. As with all capital cities, parking can be expensive, though Royal Concertgebouw visitors do receive a small discount in the Museumplein parking lot. You can collect your discount card from the box office or cloakroom.

When to Get There

During July and August, the SummerConcerts series offers something for all ages, with a range of classical, jazz, pop, and movie-score shows to choose from. Throughout the rest of the year, free lunchtime concerts take place weekly but you must arrive early to guarantee your spot.

Famous Performers
Over the years, the Royal Concertgebouw has drawn a vast range of famous acts to its stage, including Richard Strauss, Ella Fitzgerald, the Beach Boys, Led Zeppelin, Aretha Franklin, and Santana. Today, the venue continues to offer a program of popular acts from across genres, while also serving as a platform for Holland’s up-and-coming talent.
