The design of the building and its rooms also makes it an ideal venue for congresses and events. Seating 1,300 people, the main concert hall is the largest congress space in Bruges. However, because of the hall’s layout and acoustic properties, every single guest is seated close to the person speaking and can hear them as if they were standing next to them. Or how about the Kamermuziekzaal (chamber music auditorium), with its unique architecture? Of course you can use it as a plenary room (it seats 250 people), but here’s a thought: why not offer your guests a unique private concert there?
But Concertgebouw Brugge is not only a masterpiece of acoustic engineering, it is an attraction in itself. Every year, over 150,000 visitors come to enjoy the concerts, and to marvel at the architecture and the art on display. The Angel Room, for example, features a unique mural by renowned Belgian artist Luc Tuymans. This space is available for small meetings, lunches, receptions or as a break-out room.
By the way, every break-out room has natural light, and the artworks and perfectly designed layout stimulate creativity. Still not convinced? How about holding your reception on the rooftop, with unparalleled views of Bruges? Or having dinner on the stage of the concert hall? Or welcoming your guests with music – anything from a piano recital to a full orchestra? And we haven’t even got to the fact that your event will take place in Bruges, widely considered to be one of the world’s most beautiful historic cities.
