Bike Touring Highlight
In Tiefenbrunn, which is part of Eiching, Saxony borders on Bavaria and the Czech Republic. Until 1989, this border point was a tri-border region between the GDR, Germany and Czechoslovakia.

Very beautiful and historical place with information panels, boundary stones, among other things with the boundary stone from 1844. The triangle is located near Prex (municipality Regnitzlosau, district Hof in Bavaria), Tiefenbrunn (municipality Eichigt, Vogtland district in Saxony) and Trojmezí (municipality Hranice, Okres Cheb in Czech Republic) and marks the point at which Bavaria, Saxony and Bohemia meet. Until 1990, the inner-German border between the Federal Republic of Germany and the GDR and the border with Czechoslovakia began at the triangle. It was part of the Iron Curtain. Until 1918 the border between Austria-Hungary and the German Empire ran here.
