Over the Edge

Yesterday I finally visited the A'DAM Tower, a new "must do" in Amsterdam. The almost 100 m high tower belonged to the Shell company but was after they left turned into a hotel, restaurant and a sky deck with a look out over Amsterdam.

The newest attraction is a swing over the edge! I could hear the screams from above!

No way I would try that but the young ones are the daredevils

And there they go.

These boys dared to look down.

And without hands.

  1. OMG, that looks scary, you wouldn't see me either on the swings on top of that tower! I remember that building near the EYE museum.

  5. M- I had thought that you are a big swinger . . . you need to take a ride on the swings!! The building is quite unusual! PS. I just finished watching a program called Sunday Morning that filmed from Amsterdam with many delightful segments on various attractions in your city. I was particularly interested in a special street artist: lamppost art (and other attractions) by Max Zorn. Quite a guy!!

  6. Het lijkt alsof ze helemaal niet vast zitten op die stoeltjes, ik neem aan dat er wel iets van een veiligheidsriem is?

  14. I sure wouldn't go on any thing like that here. I would be afraid it wouldn't have any safety inspection.

  16. It would love to go there up, but to the swing. A fun idea to put the swings on the roof ..
    There are fantastic views over everywhere.
