From cattle market to a very special congress and meeting centre
For many years, each week, cows and calves would exchange ownership at this location; nowadays knowledge and skills are exchanged here. The former cattle hall has been transformed to a state-of-the-art congress and meeting centre, which offers modern comfort mixed with the authentic character of days gone by.

These were turbulent times, that much is sure. The thirties of the last century remind us of the Unemployment Benefit Offices, but also of very special architecture. In 1931, the city of ’s-Hertogenbosch opened the largest completely covered indoor cattle market complex in the Netherlands. Its architecture blended the style of the Expressionist Amsterdam School with the Traditionalist Style. The result is so unique, that the stately building has been listed as a nationally listed monument.
