de Doelen


de Doelen International Congress Center is situated in the very heart of Rotterdam, on the Schouwburgplein (theatre square). The largest of its kind in the Netherlands, de Doelen is a premiere community and conference center. Since opening in 1966, millions of people have visited, and tens of thousands of concerts and gatherings have taken place there.


de Doelen is a short walk (400 meters) from Rotterdam Central Station, tram, metro and bus stops. There are several parking garages around the Doelen. 

de Doelen comprises three groups of halls or complexes: the Grote Zaal (Main Hall, max. 1850 p.), the Willem Burger Zaal (max. 700 p.) and the Jurriaanse Zaal (max. 465 p.). Each complex has its own entrance, hall, foyer, and a number of smaller meeting spaces. One distinctive feature is that these three groups of halls can be used individually or in combination. This makes de Doelen uniquely flexible and perfectly suited for gatherings ranging from 100 to 3000 delegates. 

All the halls of de Doelen are accessible for visitors with a wheelchair or a walker.
