    Great way to celebrate a unique geographical marker.
    What a great way to celebrate this unique marker where 3 countries intersect. Who would think a pole coming out of the ground would draw so much attention? But there it is, people lining up for a funny moment where you can shuffle between 3 countries in a just one second, or lay across and be in all 3 at once. Then the way each country was adorned with food and souveniers specific to their country is really cool. A nice Tower lets you see each country at quite a distance. And there’s more to do than just that. This is worth a stop, and it’s worth a beer.

    Worth visiting when they renovate the floor and clean the tower upstairs.
    The people in the first restaurant friendly and very service minded. The whole ambiance good. The dog in the ticket office for the tower too sweet but the owner of the dog can use a lesson in friendliness and customer service. Your I-pad got more attention than the customers who paid 4 euro to get on a very dirty platform upstairs with broken floor.

    For completists only
    A very touristy place built around 3 countries (Netherlands, Belgium, Germany) meeting at a single point and also the highest point in the flat country of The Netherlands. Once you've seen these 2 points (and jostled with others for a photo), the rest is cafes & bars. There's a maze (labyrinth) if that takes your fancy and a tower to overlook the (rather bland) countryside) - both chargeable. And as others have said, the car park on the Dutch side needs 3 Euros from a debit card (the Dutch don't really do credit cards). If you're in the area, make it a pitstop for lunch or coffee. But don't go far out of your way for this one.

    Must see
    It is a mortal sin to visit zuid limburg without seeing Drielandenpunt. Park for free at the first tower (Wilhelmina), get up there and see the view. Leave the car there and walk to drielandenpunt, take a picture at the tourist "monument with the 3 poles", then the real 3 landen punt pole with the 3 flags a bit further, try the labyrinth (takes about 30-60 minutes) and head back to your car.

Unfortunately, all the attractions were still closed due to COVID19. But the little snackbar next to the viewing tower is open (on the Dutch side).

The Belgium authorities still had the border closed, but if you take one of the walking routes you’ll cross the border with Belgium without even knowing it.

The German border isn’t as ‘heavily guarded’, if you wanted you could just walk into Aachen from the Vaalserberg.

Also, where Germany and Belgium choose to restrict movement by tourists, I saw many tourists from Germany and Belgium in the south of Limburg. They will, at one point, all return to their own countries so the limiting of movement into those countries isn’t really a sensible one when Germans and Belgians can roam freely in the Netherlands. So far for politics and policies.

Even with all the attractions and restaurants closed on the Dutch side, it’s still a nice area for a walk. The main parking lots are closed, but there is some parking space available.

Fun place to visit, with some restaurants, maze (6eu for adult), and viewing tower (4eu per person). We enjoyed seeing the highest point in the NL and it was a fun experience to be in 3 countries at once :)
Parking is 2.50eu and you need to buy a token from either the gift shop or the machine. I wouldn't spend a whole day here, there's not enough to do, but it was a nice place to visit for a few hours. There's also a possibility of doing some longer walks/hikes around the area.

At the Dreilandenpunt you are able to stand in Belgium, Netherlands, and Germany. There is a monument where the three countries meet. There is also another monument for the highest point in the Netherlands...327 meters.

You can enjoy the two towers. One tower is in Belgium and gives a great view into the Belgian valley. The other tower is in the Netherlands and gives a good view into the city of Vaals, Netherlands and Aachen, Germany.

From Vaals, take the #259 bus (in front of the Albert Heijn Supermarket) up to the top. It is not a walkable climb and the turns in the residential areas can be confusing. With the OV-ChipKart from the Netherlands, the ride is free.

At the top, there are also restaurants, hiking trails into the forests of all three nations, and a playground for the kids. When you go down, take the Bus #350 onto to Aachen, Germany and enjoy a dinner in Germany.

It is fun location, plenty to do (The Labyrinth is located here).

During our last visit in June, the flags were gone (and the Belgian border was physically closed). This time, they were back again! Parking lots are open again too. Had a walk around the border, our son loved playing with the flags. Gladly he picked the Dutch!

It is one of the places you should visit when you are in the neighborhood. We visited the area on our bikes and it was a nice trip to the highest point of the Netherlands in combination with the point where you can be in 3 countries simultaneously. After the traditional pictures there was hardly any reason to stay there.

The area around the three-country point is intensively developed for tourism with facilities that are especially interesting for children. Huge parking lots indicate that this sight is well visited in the summer or on weekends. There are lookout towers, which in good weather offer a good panoramic view in the directions of all three countries. It is worth mentioning that the highest point in the Netherlands is located here, which is specially marked.

It's always nice to visit this place everytime we had friends from abroad. They always wanted to have a pictures with the three flags. This time we were back with no friends. It's quite crowded though it's pandemic. Well, took a single picture of the flags to send it to my friends and went away as soon as possible.
