The interior of the monumental Paleis op de Meir has several distinct areas. On the ground floor is the Café Impérial brasserie and you will also find a beautiful courtyard where you can hold your coffee breaks and receptions. The renowned chocolatiers Dominique & Fabienne Persoone have set up business in the former salon of the Grand Marshal, but the Spiegelzaal, the adjoining salon and the former bedroom of the Empress mean that the Paleis op de Meir still has ample room for meetings of up to 100 people.
The impressive Spiegelzaal with its 104 m2 floor area can hold up to 120 people in a theatre-style arrangement or 200 people for a reception. The hall’s interior is absolutely gorgeous: Corinthian columns, gold leaf, mirrors and imposing chandeliers create a sense of pure luxury and elegance. The large windows offer a regal view of the River Meir and ensure plenty of natural light. The adjacent 49 m2 salon can seat another 50 people theatre-style. Finally, there is a bar in the Empress’s chambers, so that you can receive your conference participants in a separate area.
With several opulently decorated rooms and a beautiful courtyard, the Paleis op de Meir is extremely multifunctional as a venue. The spacious Spiegelzaal can serve as a meeting location, but is equally good as an elegant banqueting hall for your corporate function.
