Buying tickets

Online
Buying tickets online is quick, easy and safe. On top of that, online sales are open 24/7. To buy your tickets online, you simply need to create an account the first time. In case of any problems, please send us a message at kassa@amare.nl.

When ordering tickets, you have a maximum of 20 minutes to complete your payment. After this time window, your order is cancelled, even if you complete the payment after the 20 minutes are up.

By telephone
It is possible to buy or reserve tickets by telephone. In that case, we’ll send you a link which you must use to make your payment within 5 days, after which we will send you your e-tickets. If you wish to pick up your tickets at the booking office, we charge €2 per order. You can only pay by debit or credit card. Opening hours and contact information for the booking office can be found below.

Payment options

iDeal
We do not add a surcharge for e-tickets sent by email. For paper tickets, we charge a €3.50 administration fee per order.

Bank transfer
You will receive an invoice from Stichting Amare. This invoice must be paid within two weeks. If you have entered an email address, you will receive the invoice by email. After your payment has been processed, you will receive your tickets by email. Tickets will be delivered 5 to 10 office days after payment. We charge a €3.50 administration fee per order.

Credit card
Please check whether your credit card company has your current address information. The credit card number used must be in the name and address of the person ordering the tickets.

Payment using a Podium Cadeaukaart (Podium gift card)
After selecting your tickets, you can choose to pay using a Podium gift card. Enter the card number and your pin code, and if applicable pay any remaining costs using a different payment method.

Please note: online, you can only use one Podium gift card per order. At the booking office, it is possible to pay using a combination of Podium gift cards.

Payment using a Theaterbon or Concertbon
Unfortunately, the paper Theaterbon and Concertbon (the predecessors of the Podium Cadeaukaart) cannot be used directly for online orders. If you wish to use one of these vouchers for a purchase, please contact our booking office.

Payment using a voucher
After choosing your tickets, choose Tegoedbon as your payment method.

Then enter the voucher code (shown on the Tegoedbon) and if applicable pay any remaining costs using a different payment method.

If the price of your ticket(s) is lower than the amount on your voucher, the voucher retains the remaining balance.

Discounts and gift cards

Ooievaarspas
Ooievaarspas holders are eligible for a 50% discount on the ticket price for many concerts and performances. To check whether your Ooievaarspas is valid for the performance of your choice, contact our booking office.

Using your Ooievaarspas to buy tickets online is not possible. We need to see your Ooievaarspas for registration purposes. This discount on ticket purchases is only available upon presentation of your  Ooievaarspas. More information about the Ooievaarspas can be found at www.ooievaarspas.nl.

DenHaagPas
Are you the proud owner of a DenHaagPas? Then you are eligible for a discount on selected performances and concerts in Amare and Nieuwe Kerk. When ordering tickets of this price type, please make sure to bring your DenHaagPas with you, as you will be asked to present it during the ticket inspection. If you are unable to present your DenHaagPas at that time, you will be asked to convert your tickets into normal-priced tickets at the ticket desk. For more about the DenHaagPas, see DenHaag.com.

Youth tickets for €10 
Our youth rate of €10 per ticket applies to a number of selected performances for youths up to the age of 26, unless indicated otherwise. If the youth rate is not listed as a price category, this means that the youth rate is not available for the performance in question, or the available tickets are sold out. 

Please note: Are you using the youth discount? In that case, make sure to bring your ID to the performance. You will be asked to show proof of identity during the ticket inspection. If you are unable to do so, you will be asked to exchange your youth tickets for normal price tickets at the booking office.

Can I combine multiple discounts?
Different discounts cannot be combined. If you book tickets online and choose a discount rate, this choice is definitive. Refunds in the form of money or vouchers are not possible.

Gift cards
We accept Podium Cadeaukaart, Nationale Theaterbon and Nationale Concertbon and our own restitution vouchers.

Exchanges and returns

Exchanging or returning individual tickets
Up to an hour before the performance, it is possible to return your tickets or exchange the tickets for tickets to a different performance at the booking office. You can submit your request to cancel the performance or concert to the booking office at the ticket desk, by phone or by e-mail. When you return your tickets, you will receive a voucher. We charge a €3.50 administration fee per exchange or return.

Exchanges as part of subscriptions, series and passe-partouts
You can only exchange your tickets for the same performance on another date or time. You cannot exchange your tickets for tickets to a different performance. Exchanges can be made up to one hour before the performance at the booking office. We charge a €3.50 administration fee per exchange.

Accessibility

I want to reserve a seat for a wheelchair user. How do I do that? 
Amare is suitable for disabled persons. In addition to escalator facilities, the building has various lifts, and the halls are wheelchair-friendly. Please do call our booking office in advance at +31 (0)70 88 00 333 (Tue – Fri from 13.00 to 18.00).

How accessible are the seats in the hall for disabled persons?
If you have any questions about accessibility for disabled persons, we recommend calling our booking office at +31 (0)70 88 00 333 (Tue – Fri from 13.00 to 18.00). Our staff are familiar with the hall and are happy to discuss the possibilities for each performance with you.

Please keep in mind that there is still a lot of building site around Amare on Spuiplein. There are no disabled parking spaces at Amare.

Are there facilities for the hearing impaired?
Amare will soon have an infrared system with a limited number of headphones. If you wish to make use of this facility, please make a request at the information desk.

Nieuwe Kerk does not have a support system for the hearing impaired.

Are there seats for the visually impaired?
Each performance offers a number of tickets for the visually impaired. Please contact our booking office (sufficiently ahead of time!) at +31 (0)70 88 00 333 to reserve a suitable seat. The booking office is open from Tuesday to Friday between 13.00 and 18.00.

If you require help upon arrival or before the start of the performance, please notify us of this when reserving your tickets. We will ensure that someone is ready to help you.

Trained assistance dogs are permitted in most cases. We do request that you inform us in advance if you intend to bring an assistance dog.

Where (not) to buy tickets

For some performances, tickets are also sold by official ticket outlets approved by Amare. These outlets are:

  • Nationale Theater Kassa
  • Eventim
  • Red Loyalty

Please be aware that buying tickets from third parties – i.e. from a party other than the theatre itself or the outlets listed above – involves certain risks. In many cases you will pay excessive prices and not be eligible for a refund if the performance is cancelled. For more information, see www.weetwaarjekoopt.nl.
