About Dutch mountains


August 30, 2016

One say that The Netherlands is completely flat, and that biking is always a cinch. But is that really true?

Wikipedia has a substantial list of mountains (bergen) in The Netherlands. The highest are in the province of Limburg. I will only focus on the provinces of Overijssel and Gelderland, and add some of the mountains that are not listed on Wikipedia.

De Nijverdalse Berg

The railway line runs through the Nijverdalse Berg. Here the railway company made a temporarily end-station, since they were in the process of building a new tunnel and station for the railway and a road for the other traffic. On top of the mountain buses unloaded the passengers for the trains. The passengers had to make a long scary walk downstairs to the train platform on the other side of the tracks. In the meantime everything has been removed again.
