Night out: See a show
Koninklijk Theater Carré23
Why locals love it
This place is magical. It's the most famous theatre of the Netherlands - for good reasons. The moulin-rouge vibe is alive and kicking, the interior is stunning and takes you back in time. The shows that are performed there are selected with care, and vary often. There's a little something for everyone: opera, comedy, dance, concerts, acrobatics.
Why you should visit it
Carré was originally a circus theatre, which opened its doors in 1887. The mysterious vibe from 'back in the days' still looms between the walls of this majestic building. When you go there, you don't just visit a show: you experience what it is like to see a show the glamorous old-fashioned way.
On saturday mornings Carré offers guided tours through the building. You can peek behind doors that have been held shut for the public for decades...
