Theater · Concert / Show
Catch a performance or simply view the modern architecture at Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ, a concert hall for classic and contemporary music that also features regular art shows. Opened in 2005, this Danish-designed building with movable chairs and acclaimed acoustics imposes itself upon the waters of the IJ, offering a visual treat to spectators. The upper floor houses a computer-aided sound garden for children and there is a seafood restaurant from which you can take in the view of the IJ. Intensely lit at night, the building makes quite a spectacle in the dark with its reflection in the water.

  • I love this place. A true Amsterdam Gem that most tourists are not aware of, what a beautiful place to come to a concern or appreciate it's Jazz Jam sessions every Tuesday from 8pm onwards
  • Amazing place with friendly atmosphere. A building project really huge. Inside a good music atmosphere with a different kind of music. You can find whatever you want to listen. We was on a jazz concert, it was new experience for us. But we seen to many people who also came on this concert. Thanks.
  • This modern building in the old town shows the other side you must visit. Inside so complete whatever you like to find. H&M, other fashion outlet, food court and very clean and free access toilet for you hold hard to find it outside.
  • A beautiful place to relax by the river. Worth a trip just for a coffee or beer on the outdoor deck
  • I went to concert of a friend it was easy to find there were nice seats everything as clean I had a great time
