The Day of Architecture

June 18, 2022 - June 19, 2022, All of Holland

In this weekend, Holland celebrates Dag van de Architectuur or Architecture Day. Architecture Day shows what architecture and urban planning can do to ensure that rapidly growing cities remain pleasant places to live. Not just in relation to residential building, but also in terms of infrastructure, parks, and all of the facilities that make cities into such a vibrant environment.

  • Discover all about innovation in buildings and public space.
  • For everyone interested in architecture and urban development.
  • Every city or region has its own program and activities.

What is Architecture Day?

Architecture Day is a great event for everyone interested in architecture and urban development. The day is organized nationwide and attracts a large number of visitors. Many villages and cities offer a program of lectures, debates, guided tours, exhibitions and excursions, or open up special buildings for people to visit. Locally, every city or region develops its own program.

Visit special architectural buildings

During this weekend, you will be able to visit buildings that are normally closed to visitors. That means a unique opportunity to look behind the scenes of iconic buildings you can normally only see from the outside.
