Belgium

Belgium is based in the middle of Europe. With a population density of 370 inhabitants/km² nature is very fragmented. Most tourists will come to visit Belgium for the (French) frites, the Belgium beer, the chocolate, and the waffles. But Belgium has a bit of nature to offer, spread across the country, from dunes on the seaside to sandy soils in the north, some peat moor areas and a bit more of a hilly and forested southern part. The highest point is is Signal de Botrange (694m). Although there is a 6m staircase on the top, making it 700m high.
