The Berlage zaal was originally used by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry as a meeting room. Around 1904, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry took up an increasingly more important role in the Dutch economy and as such it was given its own room in the Beurs van Berlage where they could gather. The Chamber of Commerce acted as supervisor of regional commerce and industry.

Please note that the medium and small sized rooms can only be booked in combination with one of the three large rooms.

The Berlage zaal was the crown in Berlage’s work. The stained-glass windows depicting various personifications of planets, was designed by Antoon Derkinderen. The logo of the city of Amsterdam can also be found in the – still original, dating from 1903 – floor rug.
