Whilst I am no music expert, I would say the sound was wonderfully clear and the intricate sounds came through. Outside the concert hall itself the archives have managed to make concrete look great. There is a token (Jeton) system for interval drinks where you need to buy a token at one booth and collect a drink at another. This... More

We walked here from our hotel during mid morning in an effort to secure tickets for that evenings performance. The program was be by Collegium 1704. This group of singers and musicians perform with only songs and instruments, materials available before 1704. And what a sound they deliver, how very rarely do you hear this music. It was a treat...

Fabulous meal and friendly staff. Quick to serve good selection of food. Clean restaurant toilets could do with upgrade but clean. Flemish stew and vegetarian lasagne both well worth trying. We both ate three course meals and had 2 alcoholic drinks. €69 plus tip.

We saw a performance of the Magic Flute from poor seats (because they were the best we could get on-line 2 months before the performance. The acoustics were excellent, but the decor is cold and stark. Bare concrete walls would benefit from pictures or at least posters. We ate in the Cafe before the performance. but the food was very...

I went there to see MountOlympus of Jan Fabre. It was mindwarping! Turned out to be the Jan Fabre month in Het Concertgebouw so I could slam my head I didn't know! The building is a masterpiece of sound technique: completely sound proof to the outside world (it is close to the railway!!) and the accoustic is marvellous. I would... More

Ticketing staff were very efficient and friendly (and of course multilingual) Wonderful acoustics (I attended Musica Antiqua) for the recitals/competition. I particularly liked the Chamber Music hall in its simplicity.

We went to see a concert of Mozart and Mendelsohn the music was very professionally played, no complaints at all, very enjoyable. The seats have very little leg room but are reasonable comfortable otherwise. However we found the staff left a lot to be desired. The short dark haired lady with red streaks ignored us when we went to fine... More

Called in here to use the tourist information, it was busy in there & the people working there were helpful and friendly. It looks out of place as its so modern among this medieval city.

We were delighted to be able to attend a concert here. We were not certain at first when we saw all the concrete however the auditorium was amazing. Spacious leg room and excellent views. The acoustics are wonderful. We could hear triple piano no problem! The staff were extremely helpful. A thoroughly enjoyable and memorable experience!
