Grote Zaal

The Grote Zaal is our main hall and one of the most flexible halls of the Netherlands. The flexibility of the technical facilities make the Grote Zaal unique. The floor parts, chairs, ceiling and back wall are all movable. While your guests are enjoying a drink in the Entreehal, our staff can transform a plenary session with stairs into a dinner set-up with a level floor within an hour!
Room arrangements & capacity



The Entreehal is the entrance hall with a large glass façade, providing panorama views over the terrace and the river IJ. It’s the central area to welcome and register guests, and offer catering. The hall is also perfect for branding and stands. 



Foyerdeck 1

This scenic bright space gives the sensation of being outside while enjoying the beautiful panoramic view over the river IJ and the city of Amsterdam. Foyerdeck 1 can be used as an extension of the Entrance Hall and is perfect for smaller groups, dinners and extra stand space.

Kleine Zaal & Foyerdeck 3

The Kleine Zaal as well as the neighbouring Foyerdeck 3 have a beautiful panorama view over the IJ. It’s ideal for smaller groups or as a break-out room. A glass wall separates the Kleine Zaal from Foyerdeck 3, which is mostly used as welcome area and for drinks receptions. The glass wall can be opened entirely to create one large room.

Room arrangements & capacity



The Atrium is a spacious, lofty and open entrance area on the 2nd floor. This is the visitor entrance for public transport, via the pedestrian bridge. The Atrium has a lot of natural light and is ideal for placing stands. In addition, it has an exclusive terrace with a view over the river IJ, towards Amsterdam North.

Room arrangements & capacity



This room is used for smaller gatherings. There are four break-out rooms in total, located along the sides of the room. The Atriumzaal is additionally used by our Education department for SoundLAB workshops; giving people the opportunity to make and compose music with unique instruments developed especially for Muziekgebouw. Naturally, these workshops can also be part of a corporate event as a musical twist.

The Food Line Up
We're hungry for change! That's why we do catering a little differently at The Food Line-up. We don't employ permanent chefs in our own kitchen but work through a network of 100 independent chefs, food innovators, and culinary creatives, who put together a unique line-up of dishes for each event. From snacks to Michelin-star plates - always delicious, sustainable, and arranged from start to finish.

View presentation


By branding you make your event in the Muziekgebouw even more yours. Think of XL banners, floor stickers or static foil on the windows. View the options on special Muziekgebouw webpages of our regular suppliers Maxtension and Brandyourevent.

Furniture & decoration

Our preferred partners BloemBloem, Koolhaas Concepts and Van der Maarel can take care of the decoration and furnishing for your event.


Koolhaas Concepts

Van der Maarel


SoundLAB is an experimental music workshop, for which more than 100 unique instruments have been developed by music artists. This can be an original addition to your business event, but can also be booked separately as a company excursion or team building activity. Guests learn to experiment with the instruments and compose a piece together. A musical background is not necessary, everyone can make music here!
