A concert at the Antwerp Symphony Orchestra should be a celebration from the moment you buy your ticket. It goes without saying that we want to surprise you every concert with the most beautiful classical music on stage, and we also strive for perfection in the setting.
Getting to the Queen Elisabeth Hall by train, tram and bus
Antwerp-Centraal railway station is next to the Queen Elisabeth Hall. From cities such as Brussels, Ghent, Sint-Niklaas and Lier, you can reach the concert hall in no time. The Elisabeth Hall is also easy to reach by tram and bus: numerous bus and tram lines pass through Astridplein and the nearby Rooseveltplaats, and the Diamant and Astrid metro stations are almost under the hall, so to speak. Moreover, on the day of the concert, you can travel for free by tram or bus in the province of Antwerp to the concert hall and back home.regulations/House rules

The Queen Elisabeth Hall is a completely wheelchair-friendly building. Lifts and sloping ramps ensure that everyone can easily reach the concert hall. Moreover, we always strive to provide the best possible assistance for people with disabilities at our concerts.
Are you travelling in a wheelchair?
A number of wheelchair seats are available at each concert. Would you like to reserve one? You can do so by telephone or at the Antwerp Symphony Orchestra ticket desk no later than 1 week before each concert. Reservation is compulsory for these seats. Although we do our best to give everyone a seat, the number of places is limited.
Are you travelling in a wheelchair but would like to sit in a fixed seat during the concert? Then you do not need to reserve a wheelchair space. You can (together with your companion) drive your wheelchair up to your seat (or row) and transfer to your seat. The wheelchair itself must be set up outside by the concert hall entrance door during the concert, and will be retrieved by your companion after the concert. Please notify our venue hosts on arrival if you require assistance with this.
