Disabled

Rotterdam Ahoy has several facilities for disabled visitors. These include an area for taxis in front of the main entrance which can also be used to drop off disabled visitors. There are also disabled parking spaces close to the main entrance. We have wheelchairs available free of charge at the porter’s lodge in Ahoy Plaza (please bring your ID as a security).

There is lift access throughout the venue. Our disabled toilet facilities are fitted with an alarm. We also have special seats available for people with disabilities.

If you would like to reserve a space in the marked wheelchair area in the Ahoy Arena, please let us know when purchasing your ticket. This area varies per event but is often a special platform for disabled visitors accompanied by one other guest. This guest must also have a ticket to the event and is responsible for the disabled visitor’s wellbeing.

Every disabled visitor can take place alongside one companion on the wheelchair platform. This person is primarily responsible for the welfare of the disabled person. The companion must also be in possession of an admission ticket. Users of the wheelchair spaces can enter the Ahoy Arena via the Arena entrance.
