At the end of my Aachen trip, I saw the information anticlimactically in the city. The lady told me it would be easy to go there by taking a bus to Vaals. It cost fewer than 5 euros and took about 20 minutes. I underestimated...More

We came here on a whim, having no idea it existed until a woman at the tourist information desk told us about it. We took the bus (can't remember the number) to Vaals in the Netherlands, and from there you're just following signs to the...More

Unless you plan a day of picnics and outdoor activities, this visit is more of a photo op and a brag that you just added 3 more countries to places you've been. A stop here is a short fun time, hopping across borders. The forest...More
