What to expect

Take a look behind the scenes of one of the world's most famous concert venues on a tour of The Concertgebouw in central Amsterdam. The famous 19th-century concert hall of The Concertgebouw was built in 1888 by Adolf Leonard van Gendt following inspiration from the Gewandhaus in Leipzig. While listening to stories about the rich history of the building from the best tour guides, you can access areas normally hidden from view.

Explore a maze of passageways beneath the Main Hall where the resident Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra gave their first concert in 1888. Hear anecdotes drawn from the rich history of Amsterdam's legendary concert hall, highly regarded for its acoustics and considered one of the finest concert venues in the world. Go to the attic above the auditorium, and see where the artists prepare to go on stage.
