This 19th century foyer allows you to find your own space whilst still being around other people. “Studying in style”, as you might call it.

Pierre Bruno Bourla built the theatre in 1830, and the first opera had its premiere in 1834. Every important Antwerper over the past 183 years has been here before you and, who knows, maybe some knowledge has lingered in the high ceilings.

Time for a break

The Foyer offers quiet and concentration. We advice you to go outside while taking a break. Some fresh air will wake you up!

Walk for five minutes from the Bourla Theatre and you will find a number of cafés with tasty sandwiches and top-notch coffee. On Fridays and Saturdays, you can visit BAR PIERRE at the entrance of the building. The Graanmarkt, the Theaterplein and the Oude Vaartplaats are right next door. For a refreshing boost of oxygen, why not visit the Botanic Garden, five minutes down the Leopoldstraat.


Getting there

There are plenty of spaces for your bike around the Bourla Theatre. There are also Velo locations nearby. Tram 4 and 7 stop at the Oudaan, five minutes’ walk away. You’ll find your ideal route with the De Lijn route planner.
