Even if you don't catch a performance here, the magnificent 'Music Building on the IJ' is a visual treat. The complex – with the main hall for varying shows and the smaller Bimhuis for jazz – was designed by the Danish firm 3xNielsen. Some 20 years in the making, it opened in 2005.

On the upper floor you'll find the computerised 'sound garden', a perfect diversion for children. You can visit the concert hall during box office opening hours, or during performances.

With huge windows overlooking the IJ, the venue's excellent Zouthaven restaurant specialises in seafood.
