I have difficulties walking/ I use a wheelchair. How do I get to the restaurant and halls?

Tolhuistuin has several locations, all of which are wheelchair accessible:

(halls & restaurant)

  • Wheelchair spaces are available in the various halls in the Paviljoen (Club, IJzaal, Zonzij, Podcast Workshop, etc.) and in the restaurant.
  • The halls on the first floor (Club, Zonzij, IJzaal) are accessible by using the elevator. Unfortunately, a scooter does not fit in there. When you enter Entrance A, IJpromenade 2, on the ground floor, you will find the elevator at the end of the corridor, before the stairs on your left.
  • There is a disabled toilet available. You can ask one of our employees to open the door.
  • At the ticketing check you can let one of our employees know if you need extra guidance. They will gladly help you.

  • If you need extra guidance, please ask one of our employees, they will be happy to help you.
