Have you ever climbed? Did you know that there are many different climbing halls and climbing parks in and near Rotterdam?
Some sports are boring or repetitive. Fortunately, this is not the case with climbing. Sometimes climbing feels more like a game (with bouldering you calculate the climbing route) or as a fun activity (for example, together with friends in a climbing forest).
Time to give it a try. These are the 10 best locations for climbing in and around Rotterdam!
1. Fun Forest Rotterdam
In the Kralingse Bos, next to the lake, you will find Fun Forest. The name says it all: here you will have fun amongst the trees!
