Drielandenpunt, Vaals … the tripoint obelisk located in the Netherlands. Or is it in Belgium? No, it’s definitely in Germany. And where exactly is the highest peak in the Netherlands these days?

Belgium Germany Netherlands Three Country Point, Trois Frontières, Dreiländereck, Drielandenpunt Vaals, Vaalserberg, Mount Vaals no longer the highest point in the Netherlands, with tripoint in background

A tripoint is clearly far more popular than a peak, even if it is only the second highest peak in the country. Most visitors do not notice the obelisk and walk right past Vaalserberg to reach the more favoured Drielandenpunt obelisk just a few hundred metres further ahead
