De Doelen is pretty much the most famous concert building in Rotterdam. It is next to the Schouwburgplein (Theatre Square), less than two minutes walk from the Central Station. In late January, early February it is also the place to be during the International Film Festival of Rotterdam. It is the place where the central ticketing occurs and concert halls are transformed into movie theatres.


Classical music and jazz

De Doelen opened in 1966 and since then it functions as a concert and congress hall. It’s named after the former music hall that was destroyed during the bombing of May 1940. Do you like classical music or jazz, than you've come to the right place. Every year there are about 600 concerts in this genre. The Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra also performs here regularly. Because of this type of music, the age of the visitors who come here is between the 40 and 60.




International Film Festival


During the International Film Festival De Doelen turns into a place of cozy chaos. as the ticket sales takes place here, its the epicenter of this event. Lot’s of movie lovers come here for a drink and talk about the movies they have seen. Talking about drinks. Next to De Doelen you find the Doelencafé. This is a very nice cafe that is decorated with an old-fashioned decor with oak furniture and nice sofas. Jazz musicians play here for free.


Opening hours


Tickets can be bought on Monday till Saturday from 14.00 till 18.00 o’clock
