Fondest memory: Vaals is small city on the border to Germany.Easy to access from Aachen by car or bus.Big shopping mall at the entrance to the city.The city is also home to the art weeks Tri-Arts in July and to the smallest museum of the Netherlands, De Kleng Wach.
Favorite thing: Both in the centre of Vaals and at the summit of Vaalserberg there are VVV Tourist Information offices. The one in the town centre is on the main street, Maasterichterlaan, and is part of the newsagent/gift shop Totaal Gemak whilst the one at the top of the hill is a wooden cabin which also sells souvenirs and postcards. Vaalserberg VVV
Favorite thing: Whilst Vaals is a Dutch town the German border is actually on the main street and the town is more like a suburb of nearby Aachen with about 30% of its population being German. On the German side the post boxes and telephones are all German and the houses were sporting the German flags (with it being the football 2010 World Cup).
Favorite thing: There is also a maze where you can get lost in if you want too. It is not very clear to see on this picture but if you take a good look you will find it..
nice forest and good seesight on the summit.
Fondest memory: I am happy and lucky to stand on the point of three countries.
