I thought there would be more excitement but it is really only three flags and some lines on the ground. Still it was a fun visit in a hot day, nice beer nearby and a tower that for a few euros lets you have a great view of all the countries. A fun little outing but don't make it your... More

We rode out from our campsite to the highest point in The Netherlands. Quite a steep climb for old folk as unfit as us but it was well worth it. The ride down was far more fun!!

Well there are things you can spend money on, but standing at the spot where all the countries merge is free. As is the parking. The atmosphere is almost like being in a less crowded section of Walt Disney World.

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
