This is a unique attraction, as it allows you to stand/be in all 3 countries (Belguim, Germany and the Netherlands) at once. Sadly the actual information available is not in English and its very limited in German and Dutch. There is a looking tower(pay to go up), gift store, a labyrinth (pay to go in and whilst the website says... More

The Three Country Border is south of the city Vaals, and has the highest point of The Netherlands (Vaalserberg), 323 meters above sea level. There is a spot where the three countries actually meet, and the parking is free.

Extremely dissapointed with this visit. Tour organised by National Holidays and I expected a visit here to be the highlight of our trip I was so wrong. The viewing tower was closed and as a result there was little to see. Our short visit was spent in a restaurant waiting for the return trip to our hotel No fault of... More

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
