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.

New York Film Academy Café

This cafe in the former skipper's café of the Beurs van Berlage takes you all the way back to bustling New York of the 1920s. There are regular live jazz performances.


In a number of beautiful spaces in the Beurs van Berlage, Sherlocked Mystery Experiences built two escape rooms. They are certainly not simple, but very exciting. There is a break out experience (The Architect) and a break in experience (The Vault). Both are definitely worth it if you like escape rooms.
