New: Europe’s highest swings and thrill ride in Amsterdam

Amsterdam now boasts Europe’s highest over the edge swing. The over the edge swing let’s you swing over the edge (what’s in a name) of the one hundred meter high Lookout Observation Deck situated on top of the A’DAM Toren (tower), opposite Amsterdam Central Station. 

Last week, Mayor of Amsterdam Eberhard van der Laan and initiator Sander Groet opened Europe’s highest swings on the observation deck of A’DAM Tower.

Thrill seekers can swing across the edge of the watchtower at great height secured by restraints and enjoy an unparalleled view of the city, while the adrenaline courses through their veins.

Over the Edge is a swing with a total of four seats situated at a height of almost 100 meters. This unique attraction is part of A’DAM LOOKOUT.

The Edge wants to let you experience what it’s like to have Amsterdam under your feet, while swinging back and forth across the edge of the A’DAM Tower. 

The A’DAM Tower is the former Shell Tower on the north bank of the IJ, opposite Amsterdam Central Station. Several restaurants, a club and a hotel are housed in the tower as well as the offices of companies within the music industry. A’DAM LOOKOUT is located on the top two floors of the A’DAM tower with an indoor and outdoor observation deck with a stunning 360 degree view of the city.

Since opening last May, A’DAM LOOKOUT has already attracted more than 100,000 visitors.
