If you are looking for an exceptional location in a dynamic environment for your business or other event, the Kunsthal is the place to be. The iconic building designed by renowned architect Rem Koolhaas offers seven different exhibition areas, a characteristic Auditorium and all the ambience of the Kunsthalcafé. A great place for gaining inspiration and meeting people.

The Kunsthal serves as a venue for your presentation or conference, for breakfast, lunch and dinner, drinks and parties, all under one roof. And you can combine your event with a visit to the exhibitions, if you want to. With approximately twenty-five exhibitions a year, the Kunsthal offers a varied programme that is rich in contrast.

YOUR EVENT IN THE AUDITORIUM

The Auditorium is an upward-sloping hall containing over three hundred coloured Gispen chairs. For smaller gatherings, the hall can be sectioned off to create an area with a more intimate atmosphere and a seating capacity of approximately 200. During daylight hours, the hall offers a stunning view of the Westzeedijk and the Euromast. The Auditorium is perfect for talks, presentations, film screenings, and music and dance performances.

MADE-TO-ORDER CATERING IN THE KUNSTHALCAFÉ

The Kunsthalcafé offers breakfast, a light or extensive lunch or dinner, high tea, and snacks and drinks for your reception, business drinks gathering or party. Dinner can be served buffet style or as a walking dinner, but sit-down meals at beautifully laid tables are also possible. The Vermaat team is responsible for the Kunsthalcafé catering and has a wealth of experience in organising all types of receptions.

The Kunsthalcafé interior is also inspiring. The industrial design can be found in the slanting pillars, the precast concrete bar and the ceiling’s lighting artwork by artist Günther Förg. The coloured bar lights create extra atmosphere and the colours can be adjusted to suit your wishes.

SURPRISING EXHIBITIONS

A visit to one of the exhibitions is an inspiring addition to your programme or event. You can offer your guests a guided tour of the exhibitions (max. 20 persons per guide) or visit them on your own. This visit can take place during and after normal opening hours. The range of regularly changing exhibitions means that your visit to the Kunsthal is always surprising.

You can give your visitors a goodie bag containing a lasting memento of their visit at the end of your event. Staff at the Kunsthal gift shop will be happy to advise you about the content of the bags.
