There's a viewing platform, with a lift. You can see across to Aachen, or look across to rural areas of Belgium and the Netherlands. Also some wooded areas good for walking. Nice little cafes also available (I believe it was the Belgian side of the border but hard to tell!) On the Dutch side there's a souvenir shop, though prices... More

A must for those who enjoy the innocent pleasure of jumping from one country to another until tire. Not over commercialised; just a few cafes and a tower with spectacular views. Ample car parking. Great fun for all ages.

Had a lovely view from this viewpoint you can see Germany ,Belgium and The Netherlands from here. There is a viewing tower (shut when we visited) that would enhance the view.

This is an interesting place to visit, purely because you can stand in three counties at the one time. The cafe and kiosk area is too built up and ruins the view and you have to pay to go up the viewing tower which we didn't bother with. I'd recommend doing the obligatory photo with the flags at the border... More

The best attraction here in the three-country border must be the, yes you get it right, three-country border. There is a stone which marks the border of three countries. You can walk around the stone and congrats, you have walked around three countries in less than five seconds. Lots of people do light hiking and enjoy the nature. Wonderful view!

Went on a busy October afternoon. Started with the tower which now has a glass floored Skywalk 34 metres above the ground. There is a lift if you don't fancy the walk. Buy tokens to access the tower from the adjacent restaurant, which also enjoys fine views. A short walk from the tower is the maze, more restaurants and a... More

Up a hill is the big tower marking the point were three countries meet, -------------Belgium, Holland and Germany. You can go up the high tower by lift to take in the view and/or have drinks and food in the cafe under the tower..Then you can walk back down the tower steps or get the lift back down
