What point on the main land of The Netherlands is furthest away from any buildings? – Travel Stack Exchange

Living in The Netherlands, I know my country is a crowded one. I typically can’t leave a town for a couple of steps before arriving in the next one. So I was wondering,

Where in The Netherlands am I furthest away from any city or town?

I know that the Wadden Islands group of Rottum is a pretty good contender, but I want to limit this to the main land, where you could actually walk for a mile or so — neither of the islands is big enough for more than a stroll.

Also, there’s of course a difference between the built-up area of a town (“bebouwde kom”in Dutch), and other buildings such as farms. Ideally, I’d like to see both points of view addressed: where am I farthest away from regular towns, and where am I farthest away from any building it all?

  1. You have to define furthest first i think. Do you mean direct distance “as the crow flies” or travel distance to get to the location? In the latter case the tip of the maasvlakte that points back to Rotterdam will likely be in the top 5 of locations furthest from a regular town
