Are there tunnels under hills in The Netherlands? Or, simply, are there hills?

I remember a photo of a railway running in a small trench, but except that, I have seen only plains.

The A37 runs below level here for the crossing of a street. The old N37 did that, and they simply added another one to double it to A37.

Significant hills are only in southern Limburg, the other elevated areas are usually only around 100 m high, and are more elevations than real hills.

Actually,

The pics are token on the highest parts of the 'Dogback'; the highest mountainridge in the northern part of the Netherlands.

Both the viaducts are located on roads leading over the highest (en thus dryest) parts of the region.

It's not really a high altitude though. The Hondsrug doesn't have any 'peaks' higher then 27 meters

Actually it is a bit lower... 26,5 meters.

It is the highest natural peak in the nothern part of the Netherlands.

Should be glad we don't have Alps. All those tunnels.. Very expensive. Plus you can't build any cities on mountain slopes so if we had serious mountains we'd be even more cramped together than we already are.
