Well worth the effort for people into quirky borders like me. It's also the highest point of The Netherlands. A couple of cafes and restaurants and play areas for kids and it would be a great place to spend a day.

This is a neat scenic area, that allows you to say that you stood in 3 countries at one time. There is a great playground for children, labyrinth, gift shop, restaurants, seasonal food stands (with beer, poffjertes, ice cream, etc.) and many hiking trails. We...More

The journey towards this spot itself is beautiful. The location and view is magnificent. It is a photographer's delight. Some photos taken are really memorable and for keepsake.

The tree country border is definitely worth a visit, especially in the summer or autumn. From Kaufland on Vaalser Straße it's about a 45 min - 1 hour of rather slow walk in the nature. There's also and educational path in the forest leading to...More

A really interesting highlight of our trip. Once there, it's not too spectacular. There's a fee-based tower you can climb to take in the panorama if you want. We declined. Each of the 3 countries has a café/restaurant, souvenir shop, etc. From the German side...More
