The Grand hall was used for the royal wedding of King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima.

In 1903, trade in products such as pepper, coffee, cocoa, sugar and oil took place in the large Commodity Exchange Hall (now called the Grote Zaal).
From five to nine, when the ‘Beursbengel’ struck to open the stock exchange, it was allowed to buy and sell. Until at half past two the bell rang again to close the trading day. At that time, the ‘Till’ determined the price of the products and the trading day officially came to an end.
