Devil’s Peak

Devil's Peak
That blurry mountain in the background is actually Devil's Peak. The popular belief about the origin of the peak's name revolves around a tale of a guy (Jan van Hunks) who entered a smoking competition with the Devil.

There's however another belief that suggests that original name was Duifespiek (a Dutch word meaning "Dove's Peak") and that since it sounds very similar to the Dutch word Duiwelspiek ("Devil's Peak") over time people confused the original name with the latter, leading to the English naming it Devil's Peak.
