Beurs van Berlage
The Beurs van Berlage, former Stock Exchange of Amsterdam (1898-1903) by architect H.P. Berlage, is nowadays a prominent center for conferences, meetings and events. The brick architecture is typically Dutch, combining functionalist details with inspiration from Romanesque and Renaissance architecture. In addition to several large conferences, the Beurs van Berlage also holds exhibitions. Bistro Berlage with the sunny terrace on the Beursplein is a favorite spot of locals for coffee, lunch or drinks.
