That mountain in Berlin was already mentioned a couple of times in the news articles about the Dutch Mountain. Dutch Mountain is gonna be higher than the one in Berlin (though the one in Berlin has a much better location, a mountain in Holland's flat polders is stupid, they can better build it in the south of the Netherlands or the north).

When designing something this pronounced in a landscape that flat you would hope they'd come up with something less lelijk

Actually...you're not the only one lol. I live in The Netherlands and nobody is taking this really seriously. Of course there are a lot of discussions going on but they are all based on 'what if...'

However, the company behind this idea is quite serious, and some banks and company's have already said they want to invest money in it. The big problem is: How do you build a mountain? Just drop loads and loads of sand and rocks on 1 place is not going to work. The solution is to really construct it with steel and concrete but that's going to be VERY expensive.

Probably will take half a decade or more until the actual work starts, add another 5 more for completion. Great !!!!

If this comes true, WOW

but i doubt it at all, even though it seems to sound serious...

the designers are going to have to come up with some seriously strong concrete and steel...

And imagine the weight of this thing? what if it sinks that section of the tectonic plate?

A project like this would be pretty much useless. The Dutch can still go to Switzerland if they want to ski. I doubt we'll see anything like this before 2050.
