Markthal is open! 


The Dutch government has announced that we will continue without 1.5 meters of society as of September 25, 2021. This means that keeping your distance is smart, but not mandatory. The F&B can open at maximum capacity and events are allowed again, only on condition that a corona certificate is required for access.


This means the following for your visit to the Markthal:


  • You can enter the Markthal without corona proof.
  • At the catering industry you get access with a corona certificate (vaccinated, tested, cured).
  • One-way traffic will expire on September 25.
  • Keeping enough distance is smart but not mandatory.
  • The basic rules will continue to apply;
    • Wash your hands
    • Don't shake hands
    • Cough and sneeze into your elbow
    • If you have complaints, stay home and get tested
  • Preferably pay with pin or contactless.
  • Follow security instructions.
  • The crowds are still continuously monitored.
  • There are columns with disinfection gel in various places


More information about the measures that the government will implement as of September 25 can be found on the website of the Dutch government.



Vending machines 


Inside Markthal there are two vending machines located where you can buy personal health care products, among which are disinfection gel (contains 70% alchohol) and non-medical face masks. You can find one vending machine at the main entrance Binnenrotte (on the Blaak side) and you can find one vending machine at the 24/7 entrance at Grotemarkt.
