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.
