1986: Opening of the first international arcade in Amsterdam
1990: The arcade in Rotterdam is the second location in the Netherlands to be added
With the company MERKUR Games Holding, the Gauselmann Group is successful in the Netherlands. Within the Gauselmann Group, the Dutch market has a special significance, as this is where the international success story began. The opening of the first international gaming facility in Amsterdam (1986) was the starting signal to carry the quality criteria for a high-quality gaming experience across borders to Europe under the MERKUR umbrella brand.
Today, the company has six more branches in the Netherlands: in Almere, Boskoop, Emmen, Hoofddorp, Rotterdam and Valkenburg.
The high quality standard of MERKUR is also the basis of success there: under the logo of the laughing sun, guests can look forward to innovative products from Gauselmann, an exclusive ambience, outstanding service and highly trained staff.
