good try, but to my knowledge there are no hill in the Netherlands that qualify! Also Norway have no known hills qualifying for this, so in the same club!

possibly a gravity hill, also known as a magnetic hill.

But it is kind of an illusion, so a trick question?

Still, they do exist; here is a list of gravity hills (not necessarily complete, but a start):

Some people like to brag about their "peak bagging" - you could hike all of these hills and excel at inverse peak bagging!

i drove from tampa to Daytona beach once, my first trip to florida. Daytona Beach was very disappointing. Before I went I had imagined it was something like baywatch, then only retired people there.

then down to the space center, that was fun, seeing the space shuttle going up. Now also the shuttle has retired.
