Vaalser Berg

Vaals is a border city at the very South-Easterly point of The Netherlands. At the Vaalser Berg the borders of Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands come together at the "Drielandenpunt", the former highest point of the Netherlands.

Since a change in Gevernment of the Dutch Antilles Mount Scenery 862 m (on the island of Saba in the Caribbean, now considered an integral part of the Netherlands following the dissolution of the Netherlands Antilles) took over as the highest point.

    Great that you had a VT meeting at the Three Countries Corner. I've been there, too, but I came up on a rented bicycle from the German side, so I've put some tips on my Aachen page. (That's Aken in Dutch so now I know where the name van Aken comes from.)

    Pieter Jan; na ons bezoek aan het laagste punt van NL 'moesten' we ook naar het hoogste punt. Wat op jouw foto staat is Het hoogste punt van ons land en NIET het Drielandenpunt. Misschien kun je dat nog aanpassen...
