Climbing at Noardwand as a student

Are you a student and do you need to clear your head every now and then? Then come visit Noardwand and exchange your mental challenge for a physical one!


A good balance between mental and physical activity is important for optimal performance. That is why we charge special rates for students:

Student off-peak subscription

This allows you during off-peak hours; to come and climb during the week from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM and on Saturdays and Sundays from 9:00 AM to 9:00 PM.

Student unlimited subscription

If you want to come every day and whenever it suits you, you can also take out an unlimited student membership. This costs €55 per month. With this membership you can use all the facilities we have to offer 7 days a week, during Noardwand’s opening hours.

You can get your membership with our colleagues behind the counter!


Climbing is a complete workout for your body. It helps improve your cardiovascular health and coordination and helps you build muscle. You will also be challenged mentally, but probably in a different way than during your studies! Good physical condition and an exciting way to deal with challenges are skills and qualities that you gradually learn while climbing. These will certainly benefit your learning process. So that’s a bonus!

And where better to climb than at the most modern climbing center in Friesland; where you can climb, boulder and relax in our cozy mountain sports café! In the summer you can also climb on our outdoor wall, which is festively opened every year. We have an active climbing community and organize fun events throughout the year.
