Back in the day

At the start of the 20th century, various wealthy families from the cities settled in the quiet green Gooi. The Buurke family wanted to bring city life to Hilversum and decided to build a nightlife venue. They engaged architect Jan Duiker, representative of the architectural style ‘New Building’, and thereby consciously chose to build a hyper-modern new building. Gooiland opened in 1936: a sleek building with much light, air and many windows. An icon of the New Building and a national monument since 1989.

Why Gooiland

  • The iconic architectural style of 'New Building': much light and air
  • Our team is enthusiastic, energetic and innovative
  • Old cameras, images of media legends and the latest AV technology
