Concert · Theater
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.

  • If I could give it 10 stars, I would. Not to be missed. Aside from the beauty of the hall, the acoustics are the best I've ever heard. True and precise, as though in the balcony you were 20 feet away, but also beautifully blended and rich.
  • Wonderful acoustic, beautiful decor and great service for beverages during the intermezzo. Went to see Ravel and would recommend any classical music enthusiasts to attend a concert here
