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?

Drielandenpunt Vaals, Mount Vaals no longer the highest point in the Netherlands, front with foot and Gemmenich observation tower

To be precise (maybe because I am so close to the German border, and the Germans do love precision), Vaalserberg is the highest point in mainland Netherlands but is no longer the highest point across the whole of the Netherlands once the Netherlands Antilles are considered (PS – yes, that is my foot)
