Rappelling from the Euromast in Rotterdam
How about rappelling down the famous Euromast tower in Rotterdam? Experience an adrenaline rush as you descend from a height of 100 metres.
The Euromast has been an internationally renowned icon in Rotterdam since 1960. With a height of 185 metres, it is one of the highest buildings in the city and offers a unique 360-degree perspective. This special Rotterdam icon is a popular (tourist) attraction that attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors each year.
How about rapelling (abseiling) from the Euromast?
Looking for a unique outing to test your courage? Then the Euromast in Rotterdam is the place to be. For the real daredevils, there is a special activity to do from May till September: the highest rappelling point in all of Europe! From the viewing platform at 100 metres height, you step over the balustrade and let yourself sink down while looking out over the city. A tough activity in spring and summer, for anyone who dares.
Excitement and thrills at high altitude
You don't need any experience to rappel from the Euromast, but you do need some guts, of course. The adrenaline rush you get from it is more than worth it, and you will be rewarded with the most beautiful view of Rotterdam. The experienced and certified instructors guarantee safety, because participants are always secured with climbing belts and wear protective gloves. After an instruction, you can start stepping over the balustrade, which for many is the most exciting part. The descent takes about 15 minutes, during which you hang free from the building for the most part and determine yourself how fast you go. Rappelling is an ideal activity for an exciting company outing, bachelor day or even for an original romantic date.
Other things to do at the Euromast
The Euromast is often seen as a tall tower with a viewing platform, but there's actually plenty to do at the Euromast, before or after rappelling. For example, there's a coffee bar and concept store
on the ground floor, which are free to visit. At the coffee bar, you can go for a coffee break and grab a snack or get something to go and enjoy in the park where the Euromast is located. At the concept store, a mix of products by Rotterdam icons is available. You can also go higher up by taking the elevator to the viewing platform at 100 metres. Or step into the 'Euroscope'; at 185 metres, you can admire the 360-degree view while rotating, which even allows you to see as far as the port of Rotterdam, The Hague and Delft. Moreover, the Euromast also has a brasserie where you can have lunch, (literally) high tea or dinner while you watch the city below. And, if you're up for a total experience, you could even spend the night at the Euromast in one of their suites.
