Fodor's Review

This globally acclaimed concert hall has been home to the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, one of the world's greatest, since 1888 and has welcomed an endless stream of top international artists. With a Viennese classicist facade and golden lyre at its peak, this sumptuous example of Neo-Renaissance style, designed by A.L. van Gendt, is music mecca to more than 750,000 visitors per year. There are two concert halls, and on Wednesdays, from September to June, you can attend

a free lunchtime concert in one of them and take in your surroundings at the same time. Tours (in English) of the building take place on Mondays from 5 to 6 and on Sundays from 12:15 to 1:15 and cost €10.
