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.

  • Love this place: the location, the view, the architecture,... You can enter for free inside the building to visit it and enjoy the view of central station and the eye. Outside you can also sit and chill when the weather is nice. And it is a great venue for music, they usually do a lot of interesting concerts. The program is usually more modern classical, electronic, jazz music.
  • Been here on a Mogwai gig. Very spectacular venue, liked it very much
  • Beautiful architecture. Great acoustics. However the place is a bit too... clinical. Definitely missing some ambiance...
  • Beautiful place to visit, great music upstairs, decent food downstairs.
  • +: relatively cheap tickets, easy public transport, low podium, attractive programs, good acoustics, changing led-lightning at the main concert podium, spectaculair view over 't IJ (the water), for reservations pick your seat at the internet - : the cue in the break of a concert for coffee, hardly accessible for a wheelchair or a rollator.
