    Hypermodern stadion "Gelredome" first in it's kind

    by Pavlik_NL Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Gelredome with (right) the now outside field

    The football-stadion from Vitesse Arnhem was the first in it's kind. The fact that the roof could be opened and closed is - of course - not that special, but that the playingfields (grass) can be slided outside the stadion ... that is a technological highlight never seen before. The huge concrete box, in which the grassfield is naturaly growing, roles slowly over greased wheels in and out the stadion. This way, use for pop- and rockconcerts, as well as any exhibition, does not damage the field in such way the playing of football becomes a true hell. If present in Arnhem and intrested in sports, maybe you atend a game of Vitesse Arnhem. or attend a tour through the stadion for visitors (only limited available).

    Take a dive in the green

    The most beautifully situated swimmingpool is without a doubt "Klarenbeek". In the hills and forest of Arnhem north, this open air swimmingpool offers wonderful green surroundings (trees/forest) and wide green fields where one can sunbath after a cool dip in the pools. Entrancefees are low and open only during summerseason.

    Swimming, squash, climbing, fitness and skiing

    Sportscentre the "Grote Koppel" used to be just a swimmingpool, but grew out to be the centre of sports in the South-part of Arnhem. The swimmingpool now-a-days is - besides an instruction- and competionpool, a subtropical swimmingparadise. Artificial waves, waterslide and yacuzi's. Weekly we go swimming here with Ilja and he loves it.

    Furthermore the "Grote Koppel" offers squashlanes (racquetball) and ski-machines (big and wide flat escalators that simulate the snow in differnt speeds). Nearby the fitnesscentre is combined with the fencing-centre and climbing-hall.
