We climbed the steps of the viewing tower to get a really good view of the beautiful surrounding area which includes the borders of 3 countries - Germany, Belgium & the Netherlands. There was a lift available for those who struggle with steps. There were a few cafes near the tower with reasonably priced snacks & drinks. A good opportunity... More

We managed to take a bus to the edge of Germany and walk a short distance to this tower (or the one next to it....not sure which one we made it to). There were some signs, but the Aachen tourist center ladies helped the most. You walk up a hill through the small town and continue on paved ground on... More

We visited this point as part of the National Holidays "Three Countries" tour and it was a good place to spend an afternoon. The towers are a must to really get the best views or if you're not good with heights just huddle around the post marking the border meeting point. There is good walking in the hills around the...

I visited family in Germany and we went to the three country border for fries, photo-taking and the labyrinth. The labyrinth took us an hour to complete and it was fun! There were bridges, water "traps" (don't worry, you won't get wet if you time it right) and lots of dead ends. I really enjoyed it and would recommend it... More

Was nice to take pictures in the point the 3 countries meet. The maze was to difficult for my 15 years girl and she insist she should not have entered.

Well, don't expect any huge, impressive site... This is a point where by chance, and on top of a hill (highest "mountain" of the continental Netherlands), three countries touch each other geographically. Quite nice to visit if you are around anyway (and yes, there is food and fun available), but I would not take a huge detour just to jump... More

Awesome hiking trails, a couple places to eat. Playgrounds for kids. Pet friendly. Climb the towers and see all three countries. Peaceful and we will visit this place often.

I was in Aachen with my son for a school exchange program. Our farewell dinner was in the park where the 3 countries meet. Beautiful views. Try the towers. The labyrinth is a tough one, beware of the water (there are sensors to shut it off temporarily so you can pass, but don't trust kids to keep it off for... More

i used my GPS to locate the attraction. without that i'm not sure if the signs were adequate enough to locate the borders park. once there, it was a great experience. you must go to the top of the tower and take a long look over the 3 countries.

Liked - great views from above. Nice restaurant overlooking the greens. Neutral - not much activities, other than taking pic with the 3 country borders, highest ground of Netherland.
