Nice building.

A beautiful old building. The architecture is very nice. There are good views on all sides especially from the river.

Given its purpose in life...seating people for concerts, plays etc.....you'd think the seats would be pleasant. Oh how wrong you are. The leg room is for a 4 year old and vertigo sufferers avoid the upstairs areas. Like many things in an over crowded country - space is premium. And this place suffers badly from a lack of it.

This former circus theater is the best place to visit a play or musical in Amsterdam. If you get a chance and visit something you can understand, go here. The building is magnificent.

Went there to see and listen to GUUS, for a second time. good show (says more about the artists than the location...) But okay, Carre is a great place, old grandeur totally refurbished, easy to access and comfortable. If they still offer the tours, you should book and see how everything works on the other side of the curtain.

The musical Pippin with the all American original cast is a very entertaining musical being performed in the beautiful theater Carré in Amsterdam. The combination of a story e told, the singing and the acrobatics makes it a great show. Definitely worth visiting.
