Interested in organising a meeting in Haarlem’s main concert venue? It’s possible at the Philharmonie orchestra building.

In this historical 19th century building, a classic-era grandeur of high ceilings and impressive chandeliers goes hand in hand with modern industrial architecture. It sets a remarkable atmosphere to join a debate, seminar or conference.
The classic concert hall is the largest of Philharmonie Haarlem. This multi-purpose area with its flexible chair setup and mobile floor can be adjusted to any layout imaginable, in service of any desired kind of event. It can be turned into a large dining hall or provide the floor for an important conference with prominent speakers. Naturally, the facilities for lighting and audio-visual technology offer the same quality and flexibility.

Would you prefer a more intimate area? That would give seven other rooms to choose from, each with its own unique style. Whichever you choose, expect the most advanced audio equipment and smart visual tools. The time has come to put you event in the spotlights and on the stage!
