It would have been something if there was a railway tunnel through a hill in the Netherlands, but there are simply none of those tunnels. Does this mean that there aren't any tunnels in this low country, no it doesn't. But all the tunnels dive under something that is basically flat like rivers, airports, green fields and city centers.

Her are a few examples of tunnel entrances.

It even goes as far that we just built a tunnel on ground level that doesn't go underneath anything at all.
