This cultural phenomenon located within a short distance of the Leidseplein occupies a former dairy. That explains its name, which translates to "Milky Way." Melkweg is renowned for both its size and eclectic performers. In addition to a dance floor and 2000-person capacity, you'll find a gallery, cinema, theater, and concert stage. Bands are often followed by DJs who play tunes ranging from house to drum and bass. Its diverse audience is a mix of locals and tourists. The atmosphere is relaxed with plenty of space to dance or mingle.


Many internationally-acclaimed artists have performed at Paradiso, formerly a church. It features a spacious dance floor and a balcony offering excellent views of the surrounding balustrade. Every week, this venue hosts different bands in action, from regional musicians to world-famous artists like the Rolling Stones. Occasionally, the stage on the first floor is reserved for smaller indie bands that draw an eclectic crowd of locals and tourists.

Olympic Stadium

Amsterdam was host to the 1928 Olympics. Although that was quite a while back, some interesting monuments still remain from that period. The most important relic remains the Olympic Stadium itself. Architect Jan Wils designed it especially for the occasion. It was the place where AFC Ajax played the home matches for the European Cup because entertaining a large audience was possible here. Many historic soccer matches have been played here. The stadium is now in its original condition and is used both as a business center and National Athletic Stadium.

Leidse Schouwburg

Leidse Schouwburg remains one of the most prominent cultural venues in Leiden. Its long-standing history dates back to the 18th Century. In the year 1705, the then noted theater actor Jacob van Rijndorp proposed the construction of a new drama hall on Oude Vest. Considered to be one of the oldest theaters of Netherlands, it underwent a major overhaul in the year 1865. The architect commissioned for the redesign was Jan Willem Schaap, who created a spectacular facade and a horse-shoe plan inspired by several Italian theaters. Post its renovation in the year 1997, it was ornately furnished with red velvet seats, gold ornaments and imposing chandeliers. It plays host to a number of theater groups from Leiden and other cities. Apart from theatrical plays, it also stages cabaret, dance and musical galas.

Het Concertgebouw

Het Concertgebouw was first conceived in the minds of the Dutch in 1881, when Amsterdam felt the need for a hall to hold performances. Today, various international performances are held by popular artists who are well-known throughout the world. A number of orchestras and recitals take the stage as well. The concert hall has incredible acoustics which have helped it become one of the top concert halls in the world.

Royal Theatre Carré

Constructed in 1887 as the Circus Carré, Koninklijk Theater Carré, as of today, serves as a wonderful performance venue. Situated close to the Amstel, this Neo-Renaissance building plays host to musicals, concerts, stand-up comedy and many more events throughout the year. The theater also includes an in-house restaurant, Oscar's, which offers three-course menus as well as excellent views of the surrounding area.
