To the west there is the National park Veluwezoom. The hills are higher as the top from my Arial :-).
Sometimes its nice to be portable on one of the hilltops from the greatest National Parks from the Netherlands.
You have the de Brandtoren and Emmapyramide. Both are perfect for portable operations
