Inside the Melkweg

De Melkweg is located in the center of Amsterdam's nightlife and tourist center Leidseplein.

It is one of the most well-known cultural centres within and outside the Netherlands, and is unique because of a programme that unites five artistic disciplines under one roof: music, dance/theatre, film, photography and media art.

Concerts, dance events, theatrical and dance productions, films, media art presentations and photo exhibitions are staged in five halls and several small rooms.

The ground floor of the building houses The Max and the Oude Zaal, which are used primarily for concerts and events.

The Photo Gallery and the Café-Restaurant are located on the Marnixstraat side, while the upper floor is occupied by the Cinema, the Theaterzaal, the Mediaroom, a foyer and the Tearoom.

You can also attend Melkweg programs at the venue Rabozaal, next to the Melkweg building.

A small membership fee is required for some of the special events but well worth it. Tickets for the theatre, cinema and concerts can be booked in advance online or by phone.
