Beurs van Berlage
former stock exchange building near Dam Square
The Beurs van Berlage is a milestone in the history of modern architecture. It influenced many modernist architects, in particular functionalists and the Amsterdam School.
The Beurs van Berlage was built in the same period (1896-1903) as Amsterdam's Central Station and Stedelijk Museum, but what is really special about the Beurs, however, is that 80% of it is authentic.
If you visit the Beurs, you will be guided through former offices, archival spaces and a meeting hall, and then to the top of the bell tower with its 'exchange bell' (beursbengel). This tour will give you a clear idea of the beauty and history of the Beurs van Berlage.
