At the three-country point, you can leave Poland via a wooden bridge and enter the Czech Republic. There are storage places for a rest on both the Polish and the Czech side. There is currently no way to get to Germany at the three-country point, but a three-country bridge is planned.

It is a historical place: for the EU expansion to the east on May 1, 2004, the central celebrations took place here in the presence of our then Federal Chancellor Gerhard Schröder and other prominent politicians.
Unfortunately for 15 years there has been talk of a bridge connecting all 3 countries and the project has been talked to death.
On the Polish and Czech side there are at least benches and crosses and other designs and a small bridge between the countries ... on the German side 2 flags and a memorial stone on a meadow.
Maybe something will happen in the next 15 years.

For 16 years there has been a dispute about a "three-country bridge", which at that time was supposed to cost around € 1/2 million, today there is an "improved" cost estimate of around € 5 million.
Because of the coal mine in Polish territory and the lowering of the groundwater in the DE and CZ regions, PL is under heavy fire, so much for "Europe is growing together".

It is a pity that there is only a bridge between Poland and the Czech Republic. Until 1945 there was the sky bridge over the Neisse, approx. 200 m further downstream. The cities of Hrádek n.N., Zittau and Bogatynia want a circular bridge, directly over the confluence of the Neisse and Ullersbach, which form the border here.

Saxon newspaper June 30, 2020:Three-country bridge before the end?Poles and Czechs have already withdrawn. Now Zittau also no longer wants the current draft.By Thomas MielkeThe eternal “Dreiländer-Brücke” project is far from being implemented: after Poland and the Czech Republic announced that they no longer wanted to build the current design, Zittau also swung into this line. As Mayor Thomas Zenker (Zkm) confirmed when asked about SZ, he will tell the partners in the neighboring countries. "But we stick to the basic idea of fine bridges," he said. The idea for the bridge at the three-country point over the Neisse was born in 2004. The partner cities Bogatynia, Hradek and Zittau had to postpone the construction again and again because of the difficulty in getting the water and building rights of the three countries under one roof. In the past 16 years, there have been several designs that have always been larger and more expensive than their predecessors. In February, the Czechs and Poles gave the SZ the reason for the change of course in terms of costs and the size of the current draft. "The last version I saw is said to cost 4.8 million euros," said Cezary Przybylski, Marshal of the Lower Silesian Voivodeship. That is almost five times more expensive than originally planned. Martin Puta, captain of the Liberec district, doubts that the population likes such an impressive work in the landscape of the border triangle.

Interesting triangle between D / PL / CZ.
Zittau, Porajów and Hrádek nad Nisou, but cannot be reached from Germany via the Oder-Meiße cycle path.

The three countries show the three-country point from the eastern side of the Neisse (CZ + PL). The Oder-Neisse cycle path runs on the German side (see also the FRG flag), a connecting bridge over the Neisse does not exist to this day, although it has been discussed since 2004. To get to the other side of the Neisse, you have to take a detour of about 3 ... 4 km.
