The Berlagebrug Rowing Centre has excellent facilities. The changing rooms and showers are suited for both groups and individuals. Safes are available for all your valuables. After your lesson Team Berlagebrug will be waiting for you behind the bar to serve drinks and snacks on our uniquely situated, often sunny terrace at the waterfront.

Clothing
The best clothing to wear is elastic, soft and breathable in combination with a simple pair of sports shoes. Loose trousers or T-shirts can get caught in the wheels under your rowing seat. Loose tops can remain hooked in the oars. Therefore, avoid voluminous coats or sweatshirts. Generally the advice is to dress up as if you were going to run; with tight pants and shirt/jacket. Additional tips:
• Water bottle
• Hats (against the sun or rain)
