Bistro Berlage's history
Bistro Berlage is located in the former main entrance of the commodity exchange of the Beurs van Berlage. This monument of trade was designed by H.P. Berlage and was opened in 1903 by Queen Wilhelmina. Behind this beautiful building is a wealth of historical events. Not only were the stock exchange, the shippers’ trade exchange, the corn exchange and the commodity exchange here at the beginning of the last century – but did you know, for example, that Crown Prince Willem-Alexander and Princess Maxima used the entrance to the Bistro in 2012 to walk into the Grote Zaal where they got married? Or that the Berlagezaal, which is directly above the Bistro, was originally the meeting room of the Chamber of Commerce and Factories and was also specially designed for them?
