    A Quick Change Of Identity!

    by johngayton Updated Sep 6, 2010

    With the 2010 World Cup football finals taking place during my Netherlands visit there were a riot of orange flags and pennants in every town, in many cases decorating whole streets.

    Here in Vaals, despite its proximity to the German and Belgian borders, it was no different. Pictured here is the Cafe Suisse on the main street which had temporarily been rebranded "Holland House"!!

    Four Borders?

    by pieter_jan_v Written Dec 29, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In the past The top of the Vaalser Berg was the point where 4 countries came together. For a time the neutral Moresnet was country number 4. It was a piece of land disputed by Germany and Belgium for economical (coal) reasons.

    The streetname still reflects the old situation.
