de klimmuur

The end of the 1980s saw the beginning of climbing walls in the Netherlands. The first real climbing gym opened on September 11, 1992 in Haarlem. Nobody had a clue what a climbing gym was, so we had a lot of explaining to do…

Since then, times have changed, and most Dutch teens have been to a climbing gym either for a birthday party or on a school outing.

Our organisation now has 5 branches in the Randstad area of Holland. In January 2013, the branches of Steeppart and de Klimmuur merged. Now you can find us in Amsterdam, the Hague (2 branches), Haarlem and Rotterdam.

Have a go at climbing!

You can learn to climb in a comfortable and safe environment. If you’re a beginner, we will help you to become acquainted with the sport of climbing. You can take a beginners’ course of 4 lessons, or a one-off introduction lesson.  The more experienced climber naturally feels right at home at our gyms. Our walls vary from low-angled slabs to spectacular overhangs up to 21 meters!


Children from the age of 8 years often have their birthday party with us. You can bring your own cake and order pancakes at the end. All the kids will go home having earned a real certificate! For children who crave a bit more action and excitement, we offer a youth course lasting 4 lessons. Afterwards, they can join our Kids Club.

Groups & businesses

We have different business package deals available at our various branches. Come for an adventurous meeting or a combination of delicious food and sports climbing, ice climbing, go-karting or scuba diving, depending on the location. You can also combine an activity with a juggling workshop or maybe an inspiring lecture. These packages are mostly custom-made to your demands. Ask us and we’ll prepare something especially for you.
