Traveling below sea level

Nieuwerkerk aan den IJssel - We all know that large parts of the Netherlands are below sea level. Some parkings at the highways do have a sign indicating if you are above or below sealevel. But how many meters are we talking about? What's the lowest point in the Netherlands?



The lowest point in the Netherlands is the Zuiderplaspolder at Nieuwerkerk aan den IJssel. This point is 6,74 meters below N.A.P. (= the average waterlevel in the Netherlands).

In addition to the lowest point there is also the deepest point. Unfortunately you cannot visit this deepest point at 1085 meters as it's at the bottom of an old coal mine shaft in the south of the country.
