The Van Nelle Fabriek lies close to four highways. Once on the exit of the A13, it is only a 3 minute drive to the location. We offer you a large parking lot. From Rotterdam Central Station you can easily get on a bus to reach the factory in 8 minutes.


The Van Nelle Fabriek is for everyone. That is why we take extra precaution to improve the accessibility for people with a disability. Since 2018 is the Van Nelle Factory the first event location in the Netherlands in possession of a quality mark for accessibility: the Netherlands Keurmerk voor Toegankelijkheid (KTG).
