Kunsthal Rotterdam open again
As the safety of our visitors and staff is our first priority, we are taking additional measures. We are asking our visitors to follow our guidelines. This allows us to give everyone the space they need, and ensure a pleasant visit to the Kunsthal.
We always aim to surprise, but not with our house rules and health and safety measures. Find out more about how you can help us make your visit a pleasant and safe one.
- Online tickets with time slots only:
All visitors are obliged to book an e-ticket with time slot in advance. This also applies to Kunsthal Friends, all cardholders, and young people up to the age of 18 for whom admission is free. By working with time slots, the Kunsthal is able to control visitor numbers and distribution. Buy your ticket here
- Observe the starting time of your time slot. This will help us to prevent crowds and queueing at the ticket office.
- Either come by yourself, with one other person, or with children from your own household.
- With the help of a fixed route and one-way traffic we can make sure that everyone can keep 1.5 metres (5 feet) distance from each other. Give each other the space for a pleasant visit. Stay together with your companion or as a family.
- Much attention is devoted to hygiene: in various places hand disinfectants are withing reach, toilet visits are regulated, and the Kunsthal is intensively cleaned.

Bags that are larger than A4 format (21.0 x 29.7 cm) have to be stored, so please do not bring these with you. Larger pieces of luggage cannot be stored.
- Follow the route and the instructions of our staff at the Kunsthal.
- Convenient: during your visit, the exhibition texts will not only be available for reading on the walls, but can also be accessed digitally on your own phone. This also helps us to enable our visitors to keep 1.5 metres (5 feet) distance from each other.
- The Kunsthal Café can only be visited after making a reservation by telephone.
- The Kunsthal Café is only open to people who have first visited the exhibitions. However, the outdoor Kunsthal Terrace is open to anyone; using the toilets is unfortunately not possible from that location.
