During events at the Ahoy Arena, RTM Stage, the RACC and the Halls, you can store your valuable items in a locker for a fee. There are no cloakrooms open. Bringing in large and cumbersome items, especially suitcases, backpacks, and bags larger than A4 size and thicker than 10 cm (including wheels, handles, and front and side pockets), is not allowed. These items also do not fit in the lockers. Therefore, we recommend not bringing these items with you.

Are you bringing a stroller/buggy to the event? Please inquire on-site with a service staff member or security guard about storage options. The location varies for each event and is not monitored. Leaving your belongings is entirely at your own risk.

The management is not liable for theft and/or the loss of clothing or other items.

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 (a parking spot costs €19,-). 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.
