The First Artificial Mountain, in Holland

A common joke or idea can become a revolutionary one. This is the case of  Thijs Zonneveld,  a dutch journalist, who said that building the first artificial mountain in Holland would keep the citizens home in their country instead of traveling to France or Italy in search of a slope to ski on in winter. This might sound a crazy and impossible idea, but local authorities took this suggestion very seriously into consideration. Holland is a famous example of a country, that gained about 20% of its surface by drying the land, so building the first artificial mountain is also a challenge they will surely accept. However, this would be the tallest artificial mountain, that is 2000 m high, in comparison with its “younger brother” Vaalserberg, situated in South Vaalserberg, whose height is “only” 323 m. The highest artificial mountain in Holland would most probably overcome Burj Khalifa in Dubai. Everyone will take advantage from this mountain, especially sportsmen and hiker, who would compete more easily in international competitions and Olympics. Moreover, there is a prototype of a virtual mountain available on the Internet – it is called DeNederlandseBerg and it can be seen with the help of Google Earth. The immense Dutch construction will be empty inside in order to save large amounts of building materials. The artificial mountain in Holland would reach a 5,2 trillions kg weight.
