Prinsengracht Concert

Making plans for the weekend?

There’s a free outdoor concert on Saturday night on the Prinsengracht. Yes, ON the Prinsengracht. A podium is built outside the Pulitzer hotel with enough space for the performers and a small audience. Amsterdammers jam the canal with tiny boats and line the canal.

Every year it finishes with the very traditional song, “Aan de Amsterdamse Grachten” (on the Amsterdam canals) with the whole audience joining in the chorus.

If you want a good view you’ll need to get there early, the boats start tying up early in the canal. If sitting outside isn’t your thing the concert is broadcast on Nederland 2 and online at klassiek.avro.nl.
