How tall is an average Dutchie today?

The average Dutch male is a whopping 181cm tall, a full 10 centimetres more than the world average of 171cm. Or, to put it into Dutch terms, around 3.3 bitterballen taller.

Meanwhile, women hover around the 167cm mark, about 7.5cm taller than the world average of 159.5cm. Or, as we like to say, around 3.5 bitterballen taller.

The tallest Dutchies will be found hanging out in the north (does that have something to do with it?) in Friesland and Groningen. Lower in both height and geography are those from Brabant and Limburg.

Are you impressed by the Dutch’s height prowess? Shocked that they’re supposedly wider than in the 80s? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
