The highest dune
Although it is always mentioned that Schoorl has the highest dune, it appears that the Schoorl Forestry Forestry Forestry Officer with the most modern and ingenious measuring equipment has recently measured that a dune top, just behind the Groet climbing dune, exceeds the dune in Schoorl. With 55.50 meters, Groet has the first to possess the highest dune in the Netherlands. From the 'highest dune' in Schoorl on the Klimweg you still have a beautiful view from 53.60 meters towards sea and polder.
