Located in a former courthouse close to Leidseplein, De Balie is home to a daily offering of debates, seminars, theatre productions and films. The varied programme is aimed at a wide audience, primarily focused on social and political issues.
Throughout the day, De Balie’s bustling café/restaurant is a great place for a drink or bite to eat - whether you’re off to an event later in the evening or just passing by. The venue’s Main Hall, Salon and Film Hall are all available to hire for external events.
As De Balie wants to be accessible to everyone, we choose admission prices according to your means of payment. We invite you to choose the price that suits you
