Please note: the 2nd Orchestra ring in the Concertzaal can only be accessed by stairs.
Visitors using mobility scooters are very welcome in Amare. You can park the scooter next to the escalator on the ground floor, from where you can take the lift or escalator to the halls. You can also borrow a wheelchair if you like. If so, please let us know when ordering your tickets.

Refreshments in Amare
Brasserie Amare and Juni Stadskantine are easily accessible for visitors with mobility difficulties. We are happy to receive you for a coffee, lunch or dinner, before or after your visit to a concert or performance.
Practical matters regarding your visit to Nieuwe Kerk
Nieuwe Kerk is accessible for visitors with mobility difficulties. The church is a ground-floor venue, making it easy to visit concerts using a wheelchair, mobility scooter or rollator. When entering Nieuwe Kerk for a concert, visitors with mobility difficulties should ask to see the location manager, who will then instruct a volunteer to provide all necessary assistance.
The Nieuwe Kerk lobby is downstairs and can be reached using a stair lift. If you prefer to remain in the hall before the performance or during the intermission, we can ask a host or hostess to bring refreshments to you. The hall opens around 30 minutes before the start of the concert, and we kindly ask that you do not arrive early if you do not intend to make use of the downstairs lobby, since room inside the hall is very limited.
There is an accessible toilet in the performers’ dressing room (behind the pulpit). A host or hostess can guide you there.
Will you need some assistance when visiting Amare? Please let us know when making your booking, and we’ll make sure to have someone ready to help you. You can for instance arrange to have refreshments brought to you in the hall during the intermission. We can also help visitors carrying an Autipas (autism assistance card).
If you would like assistance, then preferably let us know before your visit. You can reach us via email@example.com or on 070 88 00 333 (Tuesday through Friday, 13:00 - 18:00).
