In the area where the three countries - Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands - meet (the "Dreiländereck" in German), there is a lot to discover. The special position makes it an excellent start point for a variety of excursions into the Euregio, as this region has been known since the late 50s. For nature lovers, there are many miles of rambler routes and bicycle tracks.
Goedemorgen, Guten Morgen and Bonjour!
The Dreiländereck can be reached on foot from Germany's westernmost great city: Aachen. Besides the Dreiländermark, where Germany, the Czech Republic and Austria meet, this is the only point in Germany where three nations meet, other than in a body of water. The countryside here is known as the Vaalserberg. The hill of the same name is Holland's highest point and is a much-loved excursion destination visited by around 1 million people every year. Travellers can choose here between walking the numerous rambling routes or looking at the countryside from one of the viewing towers.
A child-friendly atmosphere with no boundaries
A particular highlight for young visitors is the largest maze in the Netherlands, with its fountains, which respond to movement. The water fun park is bounded by a spectacular entrance building, with a unique roof in the form of a giant butterfly. There are also a leisure park and playgrounds for children. A variety of restaurants, cafés and snack bars cater for the inner man. In the distance, Schloss Vaalsbroek, two kilometres away, then draws your attention. The historic watermill adjoining it houses a gourmet restaurant.
