The Graanbeurszaal, which translates as the corn exchange hall, was designed with a special glass saw-tooth roof, enabling traders to optimally inspect the grain in the northern light. The room now forms the perfect setting for conferences, seminars and events. It can also be used in various ways, just like the other two large halls.

In the bright northern light

Thanks to the roof construction specially designed by Berlage, the way in which the light enters this room is unique. Combined with the light brick, this is a wonderful room to use as a catering area or as an exhibition area during larger conferences.

Thanks to the 700 square meters surface of the Graanbeurszaal, there are plenty of possibilities in this beautiful bright hall.

In the Graanbeurszaal, large quantities of corn imported from abroad were traded in 1903. Due to the arrival of telex and telephones, after the Second World War grain traders had less need for transactions through the Beurs van Berlage. Until 1976, a permanent exhibition on industrial design was on show in the Graanbeurszaal and the world's first options exchange was held there. From 1985 to 2013, the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra used the Graanbeurszaal.
