The Kromhouthal is situated on business park ‘De Overkant’ in Amsterdam North. The fabric engines of STORK and Kromhouthal used to spin full speed and the manufacturers of the factory were in charge. The Kromhouthal maintained it’s raw appearance. The cranes, steel constructions, 15 meters high ceiling and a 3.500 square surface creates a unique look and feel for the hall and your event. The front of the location is situated directly at the IJ-shore and offers a stunning panoramic view over the water end the center of Amsterdam.

Public transport
You can take metro 52 (noord-zuidlijn) from Amsterdam Zuid and get out at stop Noorderpark within fifteen minutes. You can also board at Central Station. The metro line runs 10 times an hour. At Noorderpark station we have special Friends of Search buses running at times to be announced to drive you to the venue.

 

If you’re planning to arrive or leave outside of the above the announced time slots you can also walk. From Noorderpark station, you leave in eastern direction and follow the Johan van Hasseltweg. At the roundabout, take the second exit to the right to continue straight on to Gedempt Hamerkanaal. De Kromhouthal is located at the end of this road.

Ferry
Several free ferries to Amsterdam-Noord depart from the rear of Central Station. Take the ferry to IJplein (the most right ferry with your back to the station). This ferry goes at least four times an hour and takes 5 minutes. When you get off the ferry, we have Friends of Search buses running at times to be announced.
