On this website you will find a growing library of hill and mountain lists, free for you to download and use, many of which can be printed off in booklet format. Click on the 'View All' link in the toolbar at the bottom of this page to go to a list of European countries for which lists of the hills and mountains have so far been created. Select a country and click to go to its page on this website.
Most of the lists on this website are selected by their 'topographic prominence' (also called 'drop') classification. This is a way of identifying separate hills and mountains. 'Prominence' or 'drop' can be defined as the difference between the height of a summit and the lowest point on the watershed connecting it with a higher summit. Many of the lists also feature a height criterion. To learn more about 'prominence' visit our 'sister' website here.
Enough of the technicalities! Lists of hills and mountains are just a tool to get you out in the great outdoors to enjoy the challenges and joys of hill-walking and mountaineering.
