During the North Sea Jazz Festival, access roads and parking spaces get very crowded. We therefore advise you to use the public transport, with which Rotterdam Ahoy is easily accessible. Before you leave, please check the site for updated information about your mode of transport.
PLEASE PLAN AHEAD! Construction is being done on Dutch railroads, mainly on weekends. Please check www.ns.nl for any changes in the regular schedule.
Ahoy Rotterdam is easily reached using the metro and with over 30 different bus lines stopping at the Ahoy. Metro Line D departs from Rotterdam Central Station and Metro Line E is a straight metro from The Haque Central Station to Ahoy (stop Zuidplein).
Especially for the North Sea Jazz Festival, metro trains have an extended night schedule between Slinge and Rotterdam Central Station until 2.30 a.m. on Friday and Saturday night. Three night metro trains will ride all the way to Den Haag Centraal Station. On Saturday and Sunday you can also use the regular night buses (so-called “BOB bus”) that can take you to several destinations in and around Rotterdam. Please check www.ret.nl for more information.
Visitors can also purchase a Rotterdam Welcome Card. This is a chip card that allows you to travel unlimited for 1, 2 or 3 consecutive days on all metro, tram and bus lines of the RET public transport network.
Together with this chip card, you will also receive 50 discount vouchers for attractions, museums, restaurants and places of entertainment. Please check www.rotterdam.info for more information.
