De Doelen is the number two concert hall of The Netherlands, both in acoustic quality and in amount of visitors per year. Famous acoustician Leo Beranek surveyed many halls in interviews with musicans, music critics and conductors. He wrote about the Doelen: “There are no echoes in this room. The acoustics of the Doelen have been praised by visiting conductors and musicians because the sound on stage and the inner hall is excellent.” Leo Beranek. An unusual aspect of De Doelen is the use of marble throughout the hall.
