The Zuiderstrandtheater is easily accessible by car, and ample parking space is available in front of the theatre. Payment is required between 6:00 pm and midnight.

You must possess an exit ticket to leave the car park. An exit ticket can be obtained from the Zuiderstrandtheater service counter. A full-day ticket costs €5.00. Exit tickets can be purchased before the concert, during the intermission or after the concert.

An exit ticket can also be purchased from the payment terminals just outside the theatre entrance. The tariff is €1.70 per hour. Once an exit ticket has been obtained from the payment terminal, you have 30 minutes to exit the car park.

Parking is free when you park and leave the car park before 6:00 pm. Feed the same ticket you received on entering the car park into the automated gate when exiting.

If you use the car park for less than 20 minutes (for instance, to drop someone off), you can drive out for free. Use the same ticket you received on entering the car park when exiting.
