What is the lowest point in the Netherlands ? When someone digs a hole, one should not consider this as the lowest point. Therefore the Ministry of Public Works has defined the lowest "point" has to be an area of at least 1 ha (100 x 100 m2). At this moment the lowest point is in the municipality of "Nieuwerkerk aan den IJssel", near the "Derde Tochtweg". The level of this plot in Nieuwerkerk is 6.74 m below NAP. NAP is the national level, which is approximately equal to mean sea level.
The local museum (Oudheidkamer) is situated in an old farm at the 's Gravenweg, an old road from Nieuwerkerk to Rotterdam.
