Koninklijk Theater Carré

A luxurious theater on the bank of the Amstel River.

Amsterdam on Stage

Founded in 1887, this elegant theater was intended to host circuses. Since then, the Koninklijk Theater Carré has hosted all kinds of performances, from musicals to dance. If you’re looking for the classic dinner-and-a-show date night, the Carré is the place for you.

An Opulent Theater

You can’t miss the impressive white edifice of the Carré on the shore of the Amstel River–and the inside is just as beautiful. Red velvet seat cushions ring a gilded stage featuring Amsterdam’s city symbol, the triple X, on either side. Sparkling chandeliers drip from the ceiling.

The Carré has two restaurants–visit the Carré Café for a quick bite, or the Eethuis De Carrékelder bistro for a more leisurely meal. The ticket price changes depending on the show–check the theater’s website for a full calendar. But whether you prefer comedy or musical acts, you’re sure to find a performance to your liking here.
