A place where three European countries meet (Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands). Offers great vistas from the observation tower. Fantastic hiking trails leading through the area, many of which zigzag back and forth across the borders. There is plenty parking lots available and fast food. Accessible by car from Belgium (Gemmenich) and the Netherlands (Vaals)

Visited the Dreiländereck yesterday and it was a great experience. We walked all the way from Aachen train station to the Drei Länder Eck, it took about 1,5 hour to get there. We were with friends who know the way very well so it was not difficult but if you are going all by yourself, it is probably better to... More

How can you resist, being in three countries at the same time is a great photo opportunity! We parked (for free) at this site and paid the 3 Euro per person fee to climb the tower (you buy tokens in the restaurant at the bar.) The views are amazing and on a clear day you can see for miles. We... More

We came here on a very wet day but the views were still good. Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany all meet here. There is an observation tower but we did not think the day's weather warranted going up. None of our group had any problem being photographed at the actual triple point. The cafe was a pleasant surprise in not... More

Experience what Europe really means. No borders, no frontiers. We here in the borderland know what it is worth.

Apart from the fact that one gets to stand at the meeting point of three different borders - Netherlands, Germany & Belgium, this is one of the perfect weekend getaways if you live in NRW. Drive up the hill and with plenty of parking spots (€2 /day), one could visit the Maze with kids, go hiking (plenty of trails), climb... More

A beautiful park with hiking trails, mazes and much more. Interesting history the opportunity to be in three different countries at once and very nice vistas from the top of the hill. (A little to short to be called a mountain) They also have some lovely restaurants located there as well. A definite must for your trip.
