About de Doelen
De Doelen is a world-renowned concert hall in Rotterdam where around 600 concerts are held annually. Its programming is extremely varied, ranging from true crowd-pullers to concerts catering to connoisseurs, and from children’s concerts to performances of world music, making de Doelen a music centre for all audiences. It’s no surprise, then, that it is Rotterdam’s most visited centre for performing arts.
De Doelen also serves as a key venue in various international high-profile events, such as Classical:NEXT, Operadagen Rotterdam, International Film Festival Rotterdam, and the Gergiev Festival.
The monumental building is located at the heart of the city, just 200 metres from the Central Station. The history of de Doelen dates back to the seventeenth century, when an orchestra of local musicians gave public concerts in what was then called ‘De Doele’. A new auditorium was opened in 1934, but was destroyed in the German bombing of Rotterdam in May 1940. The current Doelen building was not opened until 26 years later, in 1966. In 2000, new conference facilities were built on top of the roof and the old inner courtyard. The building is a listed monument and is considered a major symbol of Dutch reconstruction, giving it enormous cultural and historical value.
