    Abseilen from the Euromast

    by 20011019 Written May 24, 2007

    I've never done it, because I've got great fear for heights, but I wouldn't want you to miss out on this:
    In stead of just visiting the Euromast you can go abseiling from 100 m. high!
    You don't need experience just a lot of courage!
    But you do have to be older than 18 yrs

    COSTS
    € 42,50 per person, entrance to the Euromast is included

    TIME
    It's possible in weekends from may - september
    But the weather has to be nice

    There is a photographer who will make pictures of your experience, wich you can find on www.abseilen.nl (and where you can order your pictures)

    Equipment: Nothing, they've got it (maybe some warm clothes)

    ABN Amro tennis tournament

    by chess_machine Written Dec 1, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    ABN Amro tennis tournament is held end of February and is played on quick.

    Went there in 2003 for the first tour. Saw two single games and one double. Tickets are cheap. Only shadow: because of the lack of ceremonial (people moving often in the stadium for instance and permanent agitation outside the stadium), you sometimes feel like you are attending your cousin local tournament and not a top event of ATP... A pity!

    Well, the level is very good. I have read Federer and Nadal were to be present in 2006 so it will be even better. Krajicek is now the tournament director so I have no worry the tournament will become more and more important.

    Football

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Rotterdam has no less than 3 footballteams in the paid competitions.

    Most well known is Feyenoord. One of the "big 3" in the Netherlands (the other 2 are Ajax and PSV), the victory of the competition always goes to one of these 3 clubs. Their stadium "De Kuip" has a capacity of over 50,000 people and is also home to big concerts and international matches.

    Sparta also plays in the main league (it re-entered the league this year) and is popular with locals as well.

    Excelsior plays 1 league lower and is just small club.

    Remember not to wear footballshirts of Ajax or PSV when you walk around in Rotterdam, they don't really like that. Outings for any of the 3 local clubs won't cause you any problems.

    Students swimming team

    by marco-aka-sailor Written Dec 30, 2004

    In Rotterdam we have a student swimming group called Ragnar. With 3 hrs a week swim training and a lot of fun I can sincerly say it is a good way to make a lot of friends!

    It will help you get around Rotterdam easier and it also give you the possiblility to check out the other major cities in the netherlands with its monthly games, every time in a different city!

    Equipment: Just your good humor and a pair of swimming trousers....
