The plateau is at 400 m above sea level. The mountain is 2350 m. It would be winter!

While we are discussing whether it is real or not the construction has already started!

This vision is so f'n retarded that words fail me...
Honestly, if they're going to build it, I'll hand over my passport and migrate to a saner climate.

Very interesting idea for the future, maybe not to be built in the next 10 or 20 years, but i like the vision of building mountains which might represent recuperating the nature in big scale.

So if it could be that here in the Netherlands a mountain can be build. Then the word play of shifting mountains becomes real hé.

It is highly unlikely that they are going to create such a massive structure in the Netherlands.
Firstly it is to expensive to build one with an estimate of 70 billion euro's. This is 1/5 of the national income(BNP) and next to that the cost of operating such a structure is immense.
Secondly such a structure would force the surrounding land to drop further down the water level as it is right now. The gravity of the earth would claim the mountain to move downwards and creating a shift in the tectonic plates. Only when they would create a hollow mountain it could become feasible. But really who would build a mountain whilst you can fly in 2 hours to the alps and go ski there?? Really come on common sense where are you?

It's not even close to impratical.

They just have to buy slag heaps from places such as here in Sudbury and they can get a nice big mountain.

Canada built a fake mountain once. Saskatoon, Saskatchewan bid for the Canada Winter Games and constructed a hill to hold the skiing events. It's called Mount Blackstrap and over 2000 feet high. Obviously, this Dutch mountain would have to be much bigger.

Even Al Hosaini Tower is more sensible than this.

Never underestimate the Dutch. Their technical skills and determination to succeed is unparalleled. The only real problem is the cost...and that is a major problem

The Dutch are wealthy. Build it, I'll visit just to gawk at it.

Then you can start with learning Dutch

No, I don’t think they are going to build a mountain, but there is always a chance.
Maybe if won’t be 2000 meters high, but much lower.

With a height of 2000 m and a base diameter of maybe 4000 m it would have a volume of
roughly 8500000000 m³.

If it will be solid, like a natural mountain you would of course need to get that amount
of rocks and sand and concrete. If you take a truck that can transport maybe 10 m² at once
and manages to deliver 10 times that amount a day to the construction side, it would
take at least 229522 years to build it.

With 1000 trucks that would still be 229 years of course

Well, not the whole country will be under water, just the half of the country.

We already have a mountain in our kingdom. The Mount Scenery on the island Saba. It’s 877 meters high.

I don't want to get off the topic but... I thought the Tempelhofer Feld will be park in future. Will there be a mountain or a park later?

a truck with 50m3 = 45904 years 2000 truck = 23 years,
also it's possible !
