Netherlands literally means 'lower countries' in reference to its low elevation and flat topography, with only about 50% of its land exceeding 1 metre (3 ft 3 in) above sea level, and nearly 17% falling below sea level. Most of the areas below sea level, known as polders, are the result of land reclamation that began in the 16th century.

Eise Eisinga Planetarium

The Eise Eisinga Planetarium from the late 18th century is the oldest working planetarium in the world. The planetarium represents the values of the Enlightenment and of the long regional and cultural tradition of the 'lay scholar'. The house and its planetarium was purchased by the Dutch state in 1825, and later given to the city of Franeker which exploits it as a museum.
