Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ
Concert Hall of the 21st Century
www.last.fm/group/Muziekgebouw

More than 100 years after the Concertgebouw, the Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ has opened its doors as the concert hall of the 21st century. At last, Amsterdam has a fully-equipped medium-sized hall for a classical repertoire which is becoming increasingly broader and more varied.

The Muziekgebouw aan ’t IJ shows current musical developments in the form of festivals, thematic projects, multimedia concerts and special series, which continually forge links with other eras, styles, cultures and art forms. The Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ has a multifunctional main auditorium, with seating for 735 or standing room for 1,500, and a smaller auditorium seating 100, both with foyers and extensive conference and catering facilities. Right next door to the Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ, is the Bimhuis, for jazz and improvisation. With the development of the southern banks of the IJ, the Amsterdammers are returning to the waterfront. The location of the Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ is a meeting place on the borderline of the old heart of the city and the newly-developed banks of the IJ.

The buildings

A glass showpiece on the harbour front
The Danish firm of architects, 3xNielsen, was selected in 1997 by the Amsterdam Council to design this new showpiece for the city. Amsterdam wanted a Dutch building with a strongly international character.
