De Doelen is a place of extremes. On one side of the building visitors walk in their evening dresses to a gala diner while on the other side an exhibition is set up for the next day. It is exemplary for the way in which the building is used. One can find prestigious concerts as well as large-scale exhibitions that occasionally have to be built up in no time. And this is very suitable for de Doelen. Apart from being a charming venue de Doelen also provides in all practical needs for any event.
