15 januari 1971 – AHOY GETS A NEW PLACE IN ROTTERDAM-SOUTH

Rotterdam – Prince Claus opens the new Ahoy in South Rotterdam. About 6,000 people watch the prince push a button. Several events were organized around the opening, like a cycling race to a conference.

In the years before, since 1950, it was at the current location of the Erasmus MC. The move to "South’ is necessary, because the Dijkzigt Hospital has to expand.
