Weekly Domtoren Concerts

Groot en Grooter
The bells! The bells!

If you can’t get enough of the Domtoren bells, head to Flora’s Hof — or anywhere in the nearby vicinity — and enjoy an hour-long concert every Monday evening in July and August. The free concert series begins at 8 p.m., with people beginning to gather in Flora’s Hof at 7:45 p.m. Each week will see different music choices performed by various experts. The Domtoren’s recently retired Arie Abbenes will be performing this evening. You can see the full list of upcoming events at the bell ringers website.

It seems I wasn’t hearing things last week. They really do play Tubular Bells on the Domtoren; it will be the closing concert of the series in August.

  1. Thanks for the heads-up! We’ll plan to be there for at least and possibly two Monday evenings in a few weeks. Exciting!

    • That’s great! There’s an ice cream truck that sits on the bridge over the Oudegracht just down from Flora’s Hof, and there’s a new ice cream/frozen yogurt shop around the corner, as well, so that could be a nice way to pass an hour, enjoying a cold treat while listening to the music. Enjoy!

    • I certainly hope I’ll make it to one of the concerts before the season is over. It’s surprising how difficult it can be to make it out on a Monday. šŸ™‚
