Most people seem to prefer the extremes - either extremely flat terrain or tall mountains. Are there people here who prefer living/visiting areas with low, rolling hills? While I appreciate the way the Alps look, I actually find the Franconian Jura (about 600 meters above sea level) and the Fichtel Mountains (which is pushing it at about 1000 meters). I find tall mountains suffocating a city or town (e.g. Sofia and the Vitosha mountain) and flatland like in most of the Netherlands is too boring. I think the only flat country I liked so far was Hungary but it also had some hills around the Northern parts and Balaton.

I was a flatlander born amidst the corn fields of northern IA and raised across the state line in MN.

I love rolling prairie. The eastern portion of Montana has some big hills. The Dragons Tail, NC! The lower portions of the Black Hills with their pine forests and meadows.

I was always under the impression that most people preferred mountains, due to their scenic nature. I enjoy all kinds of landscapes as they provide variety. If I see too much of one type, I’ll start looking for something else.

I grew up in mildly hilly rural farmland in northeast MO. It was a nice combination of green meadows, fields, and a good scattering of trees. Hills definitely make for a nicer driving experience as well. I don't like the monotonous browns and grays of mountains (or deserts, for that matter). Where I am now in cental IL it is very flat and mostly fields - not my favorite but still better than mountains/deserts.
