The Beurs van Berlage is a building on the Damrak. It was designed as a commodity exchange constructed at the end of 19th Century. It is now used as a conference venue and as an exhibition centre. The building is constructed of red brick, with an iron and glass roof and stone piers, lintels and corbels. Its entrance is under a large clock tower, while inside lie three large multi-story halls formerly used as trading floors, with offices and communal facilities grouped around them. In fact the building looks like a church outside. Don't you think so?

El Beurs van Berlange es un edificio en el Damrak. Se diseñó como una Bolsa de Valores construida a finales del siglo XIX. Ahora se utiliza como una sala de conferencias y un centro de exposiciones. El edificio se construyó en ladrillo rojo, con un techo de metal y cristal, así como piedra en pilares, dinteles y ménsulas. Su entrada está bajo una gran torre con reloj, mientras que dentro hay halls distribuídos en tres plantas antiguamente usados como salas de negociación, con oficinas y servicios comunes en torno a ellas. En realidad el edificio parece por fuera una iglesia. ¿No lo crees?
