History of the Koorenhuis
The Koorenhuis was built as a corn exchange in 1662-1663. It was a building where grain was stored and traded. In 1682 some of the members founded the Haagsche Drawing Academy, which would later develop into the Royal Academy of Art. This academy would remain in the Koorenhuis until 1839.
The complex of the Koorenhuis originally consists of four different buildings: an open market hall and three residential houses. Trade, art, culture and education took place simultaneously here. In 1967, the 4 buildings were designated as a national monument.
The Koorenhuis is located in the city center, next to the Grote Markt, the entertainment area of The Hague and easy to reach. The Koorenhuis is easily accessible by public transport. From The Hague Central Station you can reach it within 5 minutes by tram 2,3,4 or 6.
