Prinsengrachtconcert 2017

Photo Third weekend of August

A traditional free open air classical music concert held on Prinsengracht every year in August sinds 1981. The concert is held on a temporary built stage directly on the canal’s water in front of the Hotel Pulitzer.

Spectators traditionally arrive on their boats with wine and snacks. There is a unique romantic atmosphere, especially after the fall of the darkness.

Traditionally the concert is closed with a rendition of one of the city's anthems, "Aan de Amsterdamse grachten".

Location: Prinsengracht 299
