Safe, responsible & hospitable events

We understand that visiting events during the Covid-19 outbreak is not as self-evident as we were used to. Therefore we are working tirelessly to implement the changes which are defined in our protocol, guidelines and safety measures.
On this page, these guidelines and measures are visualised and briefly described. 

The most important rule states that people must keep a 1.5-metre distance at all times, and we have also laid down guidelines in the area of hygiene, safe build-up and breakdown of events and the regulation of visitor flows. All these regulations aim to protect the health and safety of all concerned.
