plan your visit
In recent months, we have worked with heart and soul to turn our venues into COVID-safe spaces; and we have succeeded! As a result, de Doelen is considered as 'very safe' by the Safety Region.
concert visit with COVID Certificates
We kindly ask you to show your COVID Certificate with the CoronaCheck app at the entrance. With the CoronaCheck app, you can turn your proof into a QR Code, which you can scan at the entrance of the activity. Please note that it can take several days before you can retrieve your data with CoronaCheck.
Show one of the following COVID Certificates together with your proof of identity at the entrance.
- Proof of vaccination
Full corona vaccination. With a European approved vaccine. Read about the validity of a vaccination certificate on the website Rijksoverheid.nl.
- Proof of recovery
Evidence that you recovered from corona less than 6 months ago.
- Negative test result
A negative test result less than 24 hours before the activity. Children under the age of 13 do not need to be tested. Make a free appointment via testenvoortoegang.nl
Please stay home (this also includes your household) and contact the box office by email if you present with COVID-19 or cold symptoms, such as (mild) fever, shortness of breath, sore throat, etc.
You can show the COVID Certificates via the CoronaCheck app.
With the CoronaCheck app, you can upload your proof and convert it into a QR Code, which you can scan at the entrance of the activity. We'll use the CoronaCheck Scanner to verify if the certificate is valid. If you don't have a smart phone you can then present a printed QR code. If you do have symptoms, we kindly ask you to stay at home and contact the Box Office by e-mail.

To buy tickets online, you need to create a personal account. After that, payments can be made by credit card (Visa or MasterCard) or iDeal. It is not necessary to print an e-ticket – you can show the ticket on a smartphone upon entry.
For concerts, we ask everyone to keep their tickets ready upon entry. The bars are open before the show and close 10 minutes before the start. We also ask everyone to take into account the measures concerning COVID-19.
A drink (coffee, tea, soft drinks, beer, or wine) is included in the ticket for many concerts. This arrangement does not apply to shows by external organizers such as Hanson's Sunday morning concerts. If a beverage is included, it will be mentioned on the ticket.
There are restrooms on each floor of the venue.
The checkroom is closed until further notice. Visitors can take their coats and bags into the concert halls. However, larger bags (larger than A4 size) are not allowed into the venue. Once the checkroom reopens, it will remain a complimentary service.

The Doelen Shop at Schouwburgplein 50 is the place to be for the best musical gifts and popular Rotterdam products.
There may be short queues to enter the venue. If you cannot stand in line or need assistance, you can ask for help at the Box Office and take a seat at the reading table.
We welcome wheelchair users and guide dogs.
