"The Netherlands, Belgium AND Germany all in a day!" Top 5 Page for this destination Vaals by Mique

Vaals Travel Guide: 39 reviews and 97 photos

3-country point

La_beba stands in the Netherlands, Pieter_Jan_v, Swanet and Eva are standing in Belgium, La_Holandesa, me, Martin_nl, Imaniac, Dila and El_Holandes are standing in Germany...

Helping hand

For group pictures it is always helpful to have someone around claiming she doesn't belong to VT and will therefor take all the group pictures.. But we don't let her get away with it that easily..

On top of the tower

Not only is it the 3-country point but it is also the hightest point in the Netherlands.. So to have a really wide view (something rather unfamiliar to us) they've build this tower.. We did reduce a bit in numbers.. You see Swanet, Jose (el_holandes), me and Glenda (la_beba) in the front row and Eva, Martin (Martin_nl), Pieter_jan (Pieter_jan_v) and Diana (Dila) make up the back row

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Much fun to go to especially with a few VT-ers
  • Cons:Not much else to see and do unless you like to hike
  • In a nutshell:Great VT-stop

    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 put some tips on my Aachen page. (That's the town that is called Aken in Dutch.)

    Thanks for this interesting page, I have those stairs that does not have a solid 'non-seathru' foundation ;-)

    Heee, Sandra ... what do you mean with "living in ... RUSSIA". Tell me more tell me more. Did you indeed move or are you on holiday and ... where then? Groetjes, Paul

    Great tips and pics. It was very windy up there on the highest point of the country! We should have waved to Stef though in Aachen ;-)

    Glad you liked it! From my old flat I could see the tower... Oh, and I love that picture with Swanet, very original, haha!
