Restaurant LIER during the Mahler Festival

Restaurant Lier © Jan Kees Steenman

During the Mahler Festival, before or after the concerts, you can savour the delights of Restaurant LIER. Gustav Mahler was far ahead of his contemporaries, and is a source of inspiration for us at LIER. Throughout the menu, we reflect sustainability, a connection with nature, as well as current trends. So every day you can enjoy different menus tuned to the symphony of that particular day, accompanied by matching wines.

Lunch is available daily during the festival, except for Friday 8 May and Wednesday 13 May. You can see the restaurant’s specific lunchtime opening hours when ordering your lunch. The three-course lunch costs € 47.50, while two courses cost € 38.50.

Each day during the festival, you can dine in LIER prior to the evening concerts, with the exception Saturday 9 May. LIER is open for dinner from 5.30pm. The three-course dinner in LIER costs € 62.50 and the wine package costs € 25.00.

The Interval Package is available during the concert intervals in the Main Hall on the evenings of Tuesday 12 May, Saturday 16 May and Sunday 17 May. The package, consisting of a drink and a snack, costs € 17.50.

Supper after the concert is available on Friday 15 May and Saturday 16 May. Suppers start at around 10.15pm. The supper, consisting of two small dishes, costs € 37.50.

When booking your lunch and dinner, you can choose the time when you would like to take your seat in the restaurant. These times coincide with the starting time of your concert. Upon arrival, you can leave your coat, which will be taken to the central cloakroom, so that you don’t have to queue to hang up your coat. You can pick up your coat from there afterwards. Your tickets will also be scanned at LIER, so that you can enter the concert hall immediately after dessert. Everything you need to enjoy your visit to the Concertgebouw worry-free.
