Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ, Amsterdam

4.5
#96 of 292 in Nightlife in Amsterdam
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. Put Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ into our Amsterdam tour itinerary maker website to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Amsterdam.

  • 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.
