Visit the labyrinth!

Beware: when you drive up here, don't stop at the first tower (which is just a restaurant) and keep following the road until you get to the very end, with 3 parking lots. Most... read more

We were looking forward to visit the Three Country Borders. We had to drive into the Netherlands to get there. When we finally found this place, we parked at the first high lookout. We entered the restaurant where we could purchase tokens for the lookout. We had fun! When we were finished we saw a memorial about a plane that... More

We have been to dreilander point with family and we were kind of dissappointed. It was a Monday but the cafes were all closed. It is just a rock with nothing around. We visited on a rainy day and there were not even flags. I would prefer being at the streets of these countries rather than driving up there. It... More

Beware: when you drive up here, don't stop at the first tower (which is just a restaurant) and keep following the road until you get to the very end, with 3 parking lots. Most people will come here to take a picture at the three country border marker. However, take a little time (and €5) to try the labyrinth. It's... More

This is well worth a visit however the actual tower on all three borders is not the first one you come across which is frustrating to be fooled into paying to go up one then realising the main one is 5 minutes up the path. Could be sign posted better but all in all a good day. We actually walked... More

I was super excited to see that this border exists so close to Aachen! I arrived in the city thinking there wasn't much to do. That being said, and maybe this is just my own poor sense of direction, it took me four hours to find this border. I originally looked up directions based off of other TripAdvisor reviews (there...

To be honest, the fact that three countries meet at a single point did little to stimulate my imagination. It possibly even highlighted the futility of borders for me! Nevertheless, I am on the whole a positive person and could appreciate the views from the towers and appreciate that there are several things which would also keep the kids happy... More

I took the Aachen city bus tour which also goes out to this attraction and stops there for 20 minutes. Its an interesting place to visit and take some photos, if you have more time there are viewing towers to climb and walking paths in the woods

Went here in March 2016. This place is definitely a must visit once in a lifetime. The views off the cliff are beautiful. The stores and tower were closed when we went but we got to take as many pictures as we can with the flags and the three country border point. It was an awesome and jaw dropping feeling... More

The best way to reach here is (and go back whenever you want) is by driving. There's a free car park further down before the peak, you have to walk about 10 minutes which is OK if the weather is pleasant. Otherwise, you can park your car at nearest car park for 2 Euro a day. Nice scenery and fresh... More
