Frequently asked questions
Of course! Come on over and start climbing. Bouldering can be great on your own, but bear in mind that it’s also quite a social activity. You’ll probably find yourself discussing the nuances of a particular route with someone soon enough in order to get to the top!
There are special climbing shoes for climbing, which have a narrower nose and a well-gripping sole. Climbing shoes can be rented from Ronimisministeerium. Climbing barefoot is not allowed due to safety and hygiene considerations.
We do not recommend climbing with your indoor sports shoes, because only with climbing shoes you can put maximum body weight on your feet. Excessive hanging on your hands quickly makes you tired. If you still prefer your indoor sports shoes, wear shoes with a thin sole!
You will find rental climbing shoes from shelves in the middle of the gym.. If you have paid for the rental shoes in our webshop, you can choose the shoes by yourself. Rental climbing shoes do not need to be booked in advance. You have to wear your own socks in rental shoes.
Bouldering is done above safety mats, on climbing walls with a height of up to 4 meters. No ropes or other special equipment are used. As the heights are not great, you don’t have to worry about fear of heights.
Wear comfortable, sporty clothes that don’t hinder movement. For example, sweatpants and a T-shirt. Jewelry and watches are to be removed from the wrists, and climbing is easier with short nails than long ones.
Of course! Ronimisministeerium offers physical entertainment for everyone – from children to pensioners. We have a variety of climbing routes for both beginners and advanced.
You can start climbing on your own, but the best introduction to climbing you will get from our Bouldering ABC courses , where you get acquainted with climbing together with our instructor. More info on the dates check Ronimisministeerium Facebook Events .
Definitely! At Ronimisministeerium we practice bouldering, which is climbing on 4-meter climbing walls, above soft safety mats.

Children are definitely welcome! We have set routes across the gym which are suitable for climbers from the age of 10. Additionally we have two beginners’ and childrens’ walls where the distance of the holds is child friendly even 3 for year olds. You can find information about children’s workouts here .
