Mount Hooiberg

Mount Hooiberg

Located almost in the center of the island, is Mount Hooiberg which can be seen virtually from anywhere on the island.

Mount Hooiberg is a 165 m (541 ft) high volcanic formation. The Dutch word Hooiberg literally translates into the word haystack in English as the landform is said to resemble a stack of hay.

There are 562 concrete steps that lead to the top of the mountain, and many have remarked about the panoramic views obtained atop Mount Hooiberg.

The beautiful panoramic view from the top of this local landmark is the reward for climbing the 562 steps that lead to the summit.
