Beurs van Berlage (Stock Exchange by Berlage), sometimes called short: Beurs Berlage, is a hundred years old former building of the Stock Exchange in Amsterdam, now used as an exhibition and concert hall. This historic building is not only grand and beautiful on a historic level, but also houses interesting exhibitions and events such as the largest show of Banksy in Europe, and the Bokbeerfestival.

From stock exchange to public palace
The Beurs van Berlage has been a “public palace” since 1985, when it was still managed and owned by the Municipality of Amsterdam. In those days, the northern end was used for rehearsals and the offices of the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra. The Graanbeurszaal and Effectenbeurszaal were converted into rehearsal and concert halls. “Stichting Beurs van Berlage” settled on the south end (Grote Zaal, Café, Berlage Zaal), organising various cultural and social activities.
