Boulder hall Energiehaven
“I started bouldering around the time that I started my Masters program and absolutely fell in love with it. Energiehaven sets a very high standard for boulder gyms. The routes are changed frequently and are often very creative. The hall is large and there's even an outdoor wall.”

Park Bloeyendael
