Bartels – Building a Mountain in The Netherlands #SWI2012

God created the world and the Dutch created the Netherlands. This old and popular expression among Dutch people could get a completely new meaning. After the polders, dikes, and Delta works, the Dutch may have a new flagship: the Dutch mountain. The idea started as a column by journalist and former professional cyclist Thijs Zonneveld. Several companies have joined forces in a foundation (Die Berg Komt Er) to study the feasibility of building an artificial mountain and brainstorm about opportunities for among other things tourism and sustainable energy.
