Around the Netherlands: Mainaschaff – Maastricht


The next day we drove on through Germany past Aachen and finally reached the Netherlands.
There is no border control of course, but immediately the style of the houses changes and you see many more people use their bikes to go around.
Our first stop was at the Dreilandenpunt near Vaals
Here, the borders of Germany, Belgium and Netherlands meet and you can look into the three countries from a tower.
It is also the highest point of the Netherlands with 322 meters!
We took the first tower, which is very nice to go up and look around, it even has a skywalk, but it’s the wrong one.
Finally we walked to the right place where a border stone and the 3 flags mark the exact spot.

Half an hour later we reached Maastricht and the parking for motor homes:
a very nice place next to the river Maas, good connection to the city by bike
We took our bikes and cycle into the city, going through the center, past the market place and a place called Vrijthof. We crossed the river Maas into the Ceramique District and drove past the Bonnifanten Museum.

a church turned into a gym = “worship your body”
Finally we did some shopping, everything went into the backpack and home at the caravan we prepared delicious pasta for dinner.
