Anyone who knows what the highest point in the Netherlands is? I`ve heard that it is the tower on Schipool.  ::) Is that correct?

The highest point in the Netherlands is the "summit"of the "Vaalserberg" (322,20 m above sealevel).

if seabed excluded, it would just pretty much be a small hike downwards, not very challenging or interesting. you'd have to add something else to that, like traveling from each one to the other only by foot, bike, or canoe, for just an example.
