The Eduard Flipse Zaal is our most intimate concert hall. A hall without a stage, and you're almost sharing the stage with the speakers or musicians. Atmospheric, intimate and relaxed. Our 'Flip', as we affectionately call the hall, is regularly transformed for workshops, lectures or (small-scale) pop and jazz concerts.
The hall is named after Eduard Flipse (1896 -1973), who was the conductor of the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra from 1926 to 1962. And, did you know that in 1973 The Rolling Stones secretly rehearsed here for five days for their European tour?
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.
