We walked from the bus stop in Vaals up to the Drielandenpunt, because there is no longer a bus that goes there and we heard the walk was nice. It was - it was a bit of a climb near the end but really, in the Netherlands, there's no such thing as a steep hill. The actual point is easy... More

Not a lot to do, but the experience is unique. You can see countries and the tower provide a wonderful view of the scenery around.

The three-countries border in Vaals was between 1839 (after the divorce by Belgium of the Netherlands) and 1919 (after the Great War) a four-country border where the borders of the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and Neutral Moresnet met. The boundary stones of the mini-state Neutral Moresnet can to a great extent be found alongside the footpaths. This walk can be made... More

Worth visiting if you are already in Aachen (which is only 6km away). Nice walking in the area and climbing one if the towers is a must for good views. We visited mid week when it was quiet but judging by the number of car parks and cafes, it must get very busy at weekends.

As a commited European, I thoroughly enjoyed this little corner of the world where borders are drawn only on the ground. I wish all borders in the world look like this! The view of the tower is beautiful - one cannot appreciate enough the place without it but 3.50 EUR is a bit dear, especially when the guy charged us... More

Standing in three countries at once is a pretty amazing thing. You can also get awesome Belgian fries there AND try to figure out a VERY tricky labyrinth maze. Caution...you'll probably get wet, and it will take a long time. The grounds are well maintained and there is a unique playground for the little ones. It's a super fun family... More

a must see and must do: walk from Vaals (Netherlands) to Gemmenich (Belgium) or cycle it (if you have the muscle and lungs to do so). Do visit the Wilhemina tower which gives you a fantastic view of the 3 countries. You can even see the cathedral in Aachen from there.

A very interesting stop if you are anywhere near the borders where Germany, Belgium and Netherlands. A spot good for children too, but the climb to the top isn't too hard and the views are spectacular. Spend a few giggly moments putting one foot in one country, one foot in another and a hand in the other like a travel... More
