Rooftop square

The roof is open every day from 10.00 to 17.30. From Thursday until Saturday the roof will be open until 21.00 h. (in bad weather, normal opening hours will be used).

As long as corona measures apply, the roof will only be accessible free of charge to museum visitors (drink or snack is mandatory). If you do not have a museum ticket, you must pay a €3.50 entrance fee. This amount includes a beverage of your choice from the bar on presentation of your entrance ticket. Entrance tickets for the rooftop terrace can only be purchased halfway up the stairs on the east side of the building. You do not need to make a reservation for your visit to the roof. 

There is no access to the roof in inclement weather, during special events, at New Year and on King’s Day.
