Geology site description:

The Grebbeberg hill is located in Rhenen. The Grebbeberg is a moraine from the Saalian ice age, about 150,000 years ago. It is in the south-east part of the Utrecht Ridge. A large amount of material was pushed in front of the land ice. After reaching this area, the ice retreated, leaving the moraines which can still be seen in the landscape. Grebbeberg is about 50 meters high. From Grebbeberg have stunning views over the river plain of the Rhine river.
