Over The Edge: A’Dam Lookout

Over The Edge: A’Dam Lookout

Hey guys, if you read my last post Going to Amsterdam? you realized that Amsterdam is a fun place where to go, but the interesting part comes now.

Before we went to Amsterdam, we were searching the internet for what to do in Amsterdam, fun I mean. There were all the popular places in Amsterdam for tourists, but what else is new?!

A week earlier we saw on TV that there’s a new fun place in Amsterdam, just opened, that was at the begging of September and it competes with the Eye of London, the Berlin Tower and so on. The Dutch engineers are some of the best in the world, but we thought, what else could be new?!

What happened next, was mind blown for me. I don’t really like heights, I’m not too scared, but I’m not either too happy to go on a building that’s 100 meters high. But I thought that I’m not doing this daily so why not, what possibly could go wrong?!

The new fun thing to do in Amsterdam is called “Over The Edge” and it is situated on A’Dam Lookout Tower , that’s the highest swing in Europe, and you will, literally, swing over the edge at 100 meters high. This is the view from the top of the building.


I was shaking, I didn’t know if it was from the wind, it was a little chilly, or from all of the emotions running through my body knowing that I’ll be swinging over the edge at 100 meters high. This is what they say about it:

‘Over the Edge’ is Europe’s highest swing on A’DAM’s sky deck. This attraction is part of the A’DAM LOOKOUT Experience. Daredevils and thrillseekers will swing 100 meters high, back and forth over the edge of the tower with Amsterdam below their feet. Enjoy the unrivaled view over our capital city while the adrenaline flows through your body.

And I couldn’t agree more!

The swing is very secure, they will put a belt around your waist, and a metal thing that will go in between your legs. The sensation is absolutely I-N-C-R-E-D-I-B-L-E, I was so scared that I couldn’t move, I was like a stone, but the view is worth it, you can see the whole Amsterdam from above and it looks amazing.

Another interesting part was the elevator:

After experienced that, I can say it is amazing, if you are in Amsterdam you shouldn’t miss that, among other things, but this is definitely one of the best things I’ve tried. I’ll let you with a few pictures from there.

See you soon with another story.
