Beurs van Berlage

The Beurs van Berlage is a hotspot that cannot be missed during your visit to Amsterdam. It is the vibrant meeting point in the heart of the city. One thing is certain, there is always something to do in the unique historical building! Have a bite to eat in one of our restaurants, visit the Tony's Chocolonely shop for the tastiest chocolate, order the most delicious fish dishes in The Seafood Bar, rent a bicycle or use one of the lockers in the Bike Rental and discover the secrets of Sherlocked.

During and after my study International Tourism Management at Tio University of Applied Sciences, I worked as a tour guide at various European destinations for a number of years.
After a few years I wanted to settle down in the Netherlands and I started as an Event Manager at an event agency that mainly focused on organizing company, friends and family parties at various locations in North Holland.
Because I wanted to live in Amsterdam again, I made a switch to another event agency where I also visited the Beurs van Berlage a number of times as a visitor. Every time I entered the Beurs I was surprised by the beautiful special building. When a vacancy became available in the Events department, I did not hesitate for a moment and I now enjoy working in this beautiful building where I still come across something new almost every day. This beautiful building continues to surprise me!
