Description Beurs van Berlage
Beurs van Berlage has a rich history of being the third stock exchange building of Amsterdam and being the host of the marriage of King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima. In addition, the architecture of the Beurs van Berlage has a story of it's own. 

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.

On 2 February 2002, the Beurs van Berlage was the venue for the civil wedding ceremony between crown prince Willem-Alexander and princess Máxima. In part because of the construction of the new north-south metro line, the Beurs was given completely new foundations between 1998 and 2002 and a number of restorations were carried out. 

Since 2008, the Beurs van Berlage has been a limited partnership with four equal shareholders, namely the Municipality of Amsterdam, De Key, Amvest and BPD Nederland. With the arrival of shareholders, it is the Beurs van Berlage’s mission to become the most inspiring meeting place in Amsterdam. That is why the building not only hosts cultural and social activities, it also serves as a conference and events centre.
