Living in Aachen, this place is just almost a bicycle ride from Aachen city center. This unassuming place has multiple significance. It is the highest point in Netherlands, which is also the meeting point of Germany, Belgium and Netherlands.

After visiting Vaals (which is rather underwhelming- but great to stock up on picnic provisions) we drove up to the drielandenpunt. After the first tower keep going and park up (€2 to park with coins on exit).
There are cafes, gift shop and playground areas. There is a monument to the highest point in the Netherlands and of course the flags to mark the meeting of the three borders - lots of photo opportunities here! The tower can be climbed / use lift for really spectacular views (€3.50 each) into Belgium, Holland and Germany.

The children also enjoyed the maze (€4 for children) Which took them about half an hour to explore while parents enjoyed a drink!

Overall very interesting place to visit.

Stopped here on our way to Aachen just because it's there, and was pleasantly surprised. Got a very decent coffee and cake from a cafe while my daughter played on the good quality equipment. The tower opened shortly after, so we went up that to take in the views. There's a lift, for the terminally lazy, like me. Admission to the lookout tower is €3.50 for adults, €2.50 for kids.

The outdoor maze looked great (€5 adult admission), but it was starting to rain, so we had to give it a miss, sadly.

Plenty of walking to do on this hill too, by the looks of things.

The largest labyrinth in europe, a 50 meter tower with amazing sight seeing and the point where three countries meet! A very nice place to spend the morning with children.
It took us an hour to find the center of the labyrinth, very worth while to visit
