Man-made mountain proposed for Holland

A design for a huge man-made mountain has been proposed for Holland, to enable high altitude activities in the flat country.

The audacious concept, drawn up by local architecture practice Hoffers & Kruger, was the brainchild of Thijs Zonneveld, a Dutch journalist and former professional cyclist.

Zonneveld bemoaned Holland’s lack of training facilities for mountain sports, and his idea is backed by the Dutch Climbing & Mountaineering Association, the Royal Dutch Cycling Union and the Dutch Ski Association.
