It was Bernard Haitink who once praised The Concertgebouw as the best instrument of the orchestra that it houses. That must have been what prominent Amsterdam residents had in mind when they decided in 1881 to gift the capital city with a majestic concert hall. Seven years later the swampy fields just outside the city limits boasted a wonder of neoclassic architecture, The Concertgebouw.

With over 900 events (80% concerts) and over 700.000 visitors a year the Concertgebouw is one of the best visited concert halls of the world.

There are two famous concert halls within the Concertgebouw: the Main Hall (1974 seats) and the Recital Hall (437), as well as the recently opened Choir Hall (150 seats).
