History of the Beurs van Berlage
The Beurs van Berlage was designed and built by the famous Dutch architect Hendrik Berlage. Since the opening in 1903, the building hosted the Amsterdam Stock Exchange. In 1985, the building became a so-called public palace, which was Berlage’s original idea for the building. It is used as a congress and event center and there is a space for cultural and social activities. The most recognizable feature of the building is the Tower of Amsterdam which houses the ‘Beursbengel’, the bell at the top. During your visit to the Tower of Amsterdam, you’ll be accompanied by a professional tour guide.
