How to get to SugarFactory

The SugarFactory event location is easily accessible via various roads. The entrance to SugarFactory is located directly to the motorway N200  via the intersection next to Halfweg-Zwanenburg station.

The ‘De Nieuwe N200’ project is being implemented from 1 October 2018. Major maintenance has been carried out on the motorway and the accessibility between Amsterdam and Halfweg has been improved. The project will be completed in August 2020.

More information can be found here.

Due to recent changes, we recommend using Google Maps.

People often ask us if our site is accessible to those with mobility issues. SugarFactory is located in a former sugar factory, and conservation has been a priority during the redevelopment of the site.

The ground floor, including the Middenfabriek, Pulppersloods, Binnenstraat and Bietenwasruimte, is disabled accessible, but the upper levels are reached via stairs for the time being.

The ground-floor toilets are wheelchair accessible.

Please contact us If you have any other questions about disabled access.
