Interesting site, where borders disappear this site gives a tangible visualisation of where the borders lie. Tip: after having taken the necessary pics of the flags, let your cell phine search for the available cell providers... You get a serious list with all telecom providers of the three countries!

We visited the three country border one afternoon. Went to the top of one of the two towers but not a lot to see as the countryside is very flat. The maze was closed so couldn't go in, but the kids play area was open. Shops and cafes were open so we had a coffee in Belgium.

Here you have the possibility to have a foot in 3 countries at the same time. On nice weather always crowded.

Border of three countries at one place - this was truly a very unique experience for me. there is a place with a stone at the centre and lines drawn indicating which side which country lies. Overall the place offers a lot - nice view from the top of the tower, play area for kids, food and drinks and lot... More

It was a great experience this visit! Being in 3 countries at once was lots of fun. You can climb a tower and see Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands from there. The road to there is curvy but the slope is not too steep so many bycicle riders :)

Just because you need to...2 € to park, 10 minute photo shoot. There are additional play areas and a hedge grown maze for a fee if you have kids
