The Netherlands isn't flat
« on: October 20, 2021, 02:03:54 PM »

You see this little change in elevation here? I know is subtle, but still shows that it's not flat.


And another one.


And another one!

Whoa hold on a second, the Netherlands isn’t the Grand splendor that is Illinois.  I say shenanigans to this thread unless it turns into a conversation about what roads in the Netherlands are haunted.

The Nether in Minecraft actually is haunted. In fact, it was added to the game on Halloween.

Proof that Amsterdam isn't flat: the canals are at a different elevation than the streets.

True and the Netherlands gets compared to Louisiana in terms of how some of their cities are under sea level.

Ask Max Verstappen, he might be able to give you an opinion on that.

One thing's for sure, the Zandvoort circuit isn't flat.

The highest point in the mainland Netherlands is the Vaalserberg aka Dutch mountains.

However if we include overseas territories, the highest point is Mount Scenery in the island of Saba in the Caribean Sea.

https://www.worldatlas.com/articles/highest-points-in-the-netherlands-by-elevation.html

Saba is not an overseas territory, though.  It is a constituent country of the Netherlands—except that it and the other two public bodies (openbaar lichaam) do not form a province.  Its residents vote in both Senate and House elections.

It is not part of the EU, but that doesn't mean it isn't part of the Netherlands.
