Industrial event location with character

De Rijtuigenloods in Amersfoort is an industrial event venue with a historic character. With a capacity of up to 2,000 people and several flexible subspaces, this national monument is perfect for medium-sized and large events, including conferences, symposiums and trade fairs. De Rijtuigenloods has all facilities required for a successful event!

Located on a monumental railway complex

De Rijtuigenloods is part of 'De Wagenwerkplaats', which is an industrial railway complex where train wagons of the Hollandsche IJzeren Spoorweg-Maatschappij (HIJSM) and the Dutch National Railways were maintained for decades. The site is full of crown jewels from the Dutch industrial revolution, all designed by the famous architect Dirk Margadant. The original rail tracks, the hoists on the roof and the monumental overhead bridge above the parking lot serve as reminders of a past full of robust steel and steaming horsepower.
