Free Wednesday Concerts

Free Wednesday Concerts

Check out the Concertgebouw website for free noon-time Wednesday concerts. Just at the end of Museumplein, stand in the queue early with all the little Dutch ladies of a certain age and grab a bit of culture and music gratis. Arrive early to secure tickets if the concert is in the Kleine Zaal or Small Hall. If the concert is in the Grote or Large Zaal, you should be fine! The cafe is nice for a coffee before or after the music.
