    The three-country point located on the Vaalserberg. Did you know that it used to be a four-country point consisting of the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and Neutral Moresnet.

    The three-country point Aachen is between Germany, Belgium and Holland

    The cathedral city of Aachen is the westernmost city in Germany.
    It borders on Belgium and the Netherlands.

    The Netherlands, or commonly called Holland, is a fairly flat country.
    But about 5 km west of Aachen city center is Holland's highest mountain - the Vaalserberg with 322 m.
    And exactly on this mountain is the three-country point Aachen - Holland - Belgium.
    The exact location is 2 km away from Vaals in the Dutch province of Limburg.
    Vaals is a small border town, where a lot of Germans live, especially students who study in Aachen. In short, Vaals is almost a district of Aachen.

    Worth visiting to say you've been to the highest point in the Netherlands, but also to visit the point where Netherlands, Belgium and Germany borders meet.

    Great for calibrating the barometric altimeters of sports equipment for the tour.

    Worth the climb and as reward a coffee stop at the top. Also highest point for the Amstel Gold Race each year.

    Here you are not alone but certainly meets cycling colleagues who want to climb the highest elevation in the Netherlands.

    Great to visit the point where Netherlands, Belgium and Germany meet. Also worth visiting the highest point in Netherlands a couple of hundred metres away.

    Just before the descent to Belgium there is a bench on the left. There you have a beautiful view over the Voer region

    The highest point of the Netherlands can be reached via the Dutch side, via the Belgian side and also via the German side.

    You might want to come as a group so you can guard over your bikes when others go up the tower.

    Very touristy place but nice to climb to. We drove up from Belgium, this climb is fairly smooth and not super steep.

    The climb from Plombieres is more demanding ...

    I have now learned from other highlights that it is something special for people who did not grow up in a border region to cross a border on a bike tour 😁
    Then this is the holy grail with 3 countries that meet and you can take a photo of your racing bike in 3 countries at the same time 😏 And also take the highest point in the Netherlands with you. Personally, I think it's the most beautiful approach from Gemmenich (BE). But there are 3 options 😁

    Who hasn't been there should go.
    But there are almost always too many people for me there.
    Nevertheless, it is a beautiful area and a few 100 m away from the three-country point you are almost alone again - no matter which country you go or drive.

    To take a photo with the three flags is a must!

    Climb from the Belgian side is more beautiful than from Vaals!
