ANother fun page. Photos would be nice. Also, a bit more directions to the trailhead. If the trailheads are obvious from the village, then mention this...

The information is basically right, but as I think that slight lanscape protrusions like this should not be on a site with the intentions of summitpost, I cannot help to give it a low rating.

I have never heard of Vaalserberg before seeing it on summitpost. Now, if by good fortune I am ever near it, I will make the effort to reach its humble summit.

Since it is the highest point of the Netherlands, it certainly deserves a page on SP! It adds to the completeness of the site.

The Vaalserberg on SP. Not only for it's completeness, but defenitly for giving information 'bout all humps in the world. But always ask yourself the question if it is worth to climp "mountains" like these.

Give me a reason not to climb mountains like these. If you are a traveller and a lover of the earth then surely the Vaalserberg has as much right to be in there as mountains from the high Alps, Andes and Himalayas (in which I have also climbed). My experience of climbing the Vaalserberg was a lovely one - height is only one aspect to a mountains (or hills) appeal.

I think humps like these do belong on SP. Remember there are peakbaggers who like to do every highpoint in the world, people who enjoy hiking but aren't up for the physically challenging stuff, and also, just for it's completeness. Another thing, when is something a "landscape portrusion" and when not? I know of hills with a lower actual summit elevation, but which require a lot of technical climbing skills to scale. (e.g. Rooster Rock, easiest route up being YDS 5.4)



Okay, after that's said, a couple of comments:

Vaalserberg is not 321, but 323 meters in elevation, according to my topo maps from the "topografische dienst" and the summit is, in contrary to popular belief, not on the "drielandenpunt", but 200 meters to the WNW of it, making the summit of the Vaalserberg being entirely in the Netherlands. (now, "summit" is extremely relative here, since the vaalserberg is not actually a mountain, but a shoulder of the Preusberg-Homesberg)

Preusberg: Germany, 341 meters

Homesberg: Belgium, 343 meters.

I believe Vaalserberg does deserve a place in SP. At least as a piece of information for "summit-baggers" who are trying the highest spots of each country in the world. Thanks for your work, Antony.
