Carillon Concerts - One of the most uplifting ‘free things’ in Amsterdam are the Carillon Concerts that chime from the local church towers four times a week.
The city's Carillons are quite popular and you sometimes see an office window, a kitchen shutter or a hatch open up to let in the sounds in of these glorious 17th-century bells. The music ranges from classic to folk to modern music. Programs are usually posted the day before at the foot of the tower.
To catch these concerts, be around the Church on the following times:
Westerkerk (Prinsengracht 281) Tuesday from 12 till 1 P.M.;
Zuiderkerk (Zandstraat) Thursday from 10 till 11 A.M.;
Munttoren (Muntplein) Friday from 12 till 1 P.M.;
Oude Kerk (Oudekerksplein 23) Saturday from 4 till 5 P.M.
