The geographical placement of the Netherlands makes the country quite unique and gives it an agricultural advantage over countries further from the equator. The Netherlands has a lot of greenery, vegetation, smart irrigation systems, and it’s technically below sea level.
The highest point in the Netherlands, with a staggering altitude of 322 metres above sea level, is the summit of Vaalserberg — a hill located in the province of Limburg. The lowest point — which lies 6.74 meters below sea level — is found in the Zuiderplaspolder in Nieuwerkerk aan den IJssel. What else is there to know?
