1012 ZJ Amsterdam
The Beurs van Berlage – Amsterdam’s former commodities exchange – is one of the defining monuments of the Dutch capital. With 25 rooms, including one of the largest assembly halls in central Amsterdam, ample parking facilities and a wealth of hotels nearby to choose from, the Beurs van Berlage is one of the Netherlands’ top venues for events and conferences. Modern facilities are seamlessly integrated into the unique and inspiring fabric of this historic building. Hendrik Berlage’s architectural tour de force adds a special dimension to your business gathering or celebration.
The Grote Zaal at the Beurs van Berlage is the largest hall in Amsterdam city centre and perfect for hosting a big dinner, presentation, exclusive trade fair or sizzling celebration.
The Administratie Zaal was built as an meetingroom for the Amsterdam Stock Exchange Association. Today, the space is still perfectly suited for conferences, symposiums and other meetings.
Originally, the Beursfoyer served as a communication hub for the traders. Equipped with a telegraph, telephone and post office, this was the principal spot from which to dispatch important messages to business contacts near and far. Nowadays, this space is also a hub of sorts, connecting all the large halls with each other.
The Effectenbeurszaal is an inspiring space and has been put to a myriad of uses over the centuries. From stock exchange to concert hall, this space has seen it all. And that was precisely what Jan Toorop saw, too, when he designed the frieze of ceramic tiles for this hall, centring around the theme of labour in all its forms. The space also boasts splendid acoustics, enhancing the most diverse range of events. From business conferences to swinging rock ’n roll acts, it’s all possible.
The Graanbeurszaal is the hall of northerly light and the hall of stories. Where the clear northern light was once used to inspect grains of corn, this is now the perfect setting for conferences, seminars and parties, lit by radiant natural sunlight. Thanks to the special angle of illumination and the room's pale yellow stones, the interior is bathed in beautifully bright, suffused light. On the walls are pictures chronicling the progress from a grain of corn to a loaf of bread – one of the most basic ingredients of human civilization.
Originally, the Assay Hall was an open-air terrace, with ample space to receive guests. It also preserves a commemorative stone for the old commodities exchange, which dated back to 1613. Above the stone is the symbol of the Roman god Mercury, protector of trade and profit.
