Theaterloods - Radio Kootwijk

The monumental Radio Kootwijk

In the heart of the Veluwe, the trees of the Netherlands' largest forest area suddenly make way for a large open area of ??heathland and sand drifts: the Kootwijkerzand. With an area of ??700 hectares, the Kootwijkerzand is the largest active sand drift in Western Europe. In the middle is the monumental Radio Kootwijk. In the first half of the 20th century, the former transmitting station formed an important communication link between its former colonies, especially the Dutch East Indies.

The construction of the eclectic building started in 1918. Now almost 100 years later, Radio Kootwijk is an event and meeting location with a completely individual character. A unique high-impact event location for companies and institutions. An impressive cultural-historical monument for the public. The building can also be visited via a guided tour or on your own during opening days. You can find this information via The road to it, the imposing main building, the peace, space and nature; It's space that touches you!


Spa for work, life and love. This industrial location in the middle of the Veluwe offers you and your organization plenty of space to meet, follow your own programs and be inspired by art, culture, nature and science. A versatile team of professionals is ready to explore the possibilities with you and offers current programs on topics that are of value; new leadership, sustainability, collaboration, diversity, hybrid working and vitality. In addition to expertise, the atmospheric Theaterloods offers a well-equipped theater, various sub-rooms, a gastronomic restaurant and a spacious terrace surrounded by extensive nature.

The Theaterloods is housed in a former work shed on the site of radio-telegraphic broadcasting station Radio Kootwijk. Until the closure of the transmitter park, the work shed was used for the construction and maintenance of transmitter equipment. In 2010, the monumental building was taken into use as 'De Theaterloods' and attractively furnished for groups of up to 150 people.
