Liechtenstein will be an interesting issue, time to work out their differences with the Czechs and Slovaks? Another interesting issue will be the Eurairport on French soil but closer to Basel than to Mulhouse. Right now there is a road connecting from Switzerland directly to the Swiss part of the airport without passing any customs checks. Indeed, there is a customs check inside the airport between the Swiss and French part. I wonder if this will be changed somehow.

There aren't even border crossings between those countries, if I recall correctly (it's been quite a while).

I really like the idea of the Schengen agreement. Europe has been a place that's interested me to visit (and perhaps live) for quite some time. I think that Africa could do with a similar agreement between its various countries, not that that's likely to happen in the foreseeable future.

Seems pretty weird to me... Such a small country to be the only one within thousands of miles in every direction to demand a passport control? What's the point? Vatican city or Monaco passport controls would make just as much sense.

It will be a lot easier. ATM, there's a French and a Swiss part of the airport, IIRC. Obviously they can scrap that division now. I'll also be interested in Basel's three train stations. (SBB/DB/SNCF)[/quote]

That Switzerland is joining is good news. Only in 2002 they joined the UN, but I guess it's difficult for Switzerland to remain completely neutral in a world like this. This will mean that Austria and Germany have no control anymore at any of their borders

With Switzerland now in Schengen, will we be seeing the Swiss A7 autobahn being extended to directly connect into the German A81, along with other highway connections?

I think a prolongation of the A4 is more likely, the Swiss A7 would go straight through Konstanz.

Actually the A4 and A7 both reach the border, but the A4 is just 2×1. I don't even know why it goes north of Schaffhausen, when the link with the German motorway A81 goes east of it (road #15). Germany will never bring any motorway to the Swiss A4 north of Schaffhausen.

No, but the German A96 reaches nearly to the Swiss border near Gottmadingen/Bietingen. The A96 connects to the north-south A81 Autobahn to Stuttgart.

That's A81 too. But you probably wanted to say A98, not A96.

Does anyone know why Liechtenstein is not joining now? The plan had been all along that they would join at the same time as Switzerland.

Under the agreement, Swiss authorities will drop passport checks at the land borders to Germany, France, Italy and Austria - but would have to enhance controls at the border with Liechtenstein, which is not part of the Schengen area.
A lot of crime coming from Liechtenstein apparently. Not to mention that it's completely landlocked - even doubly. And there's no airport there either. Maybe it's Liechtenstein that wants to control its border? They didn't do it before though, their border with Austria was (is) controlled by the Swiss.

NOW:

you get controlled cause of goods you carry with you, not as person yourself

so where´s the change

AND

you HAVE to carry your passport with you (of course) , so where´s the change ?


BTW: Liechtenstein (which is more interesting in my town) is not Schengen yet

ID is enough. The change is for those with "exotic" license plates (citizenships). They were (are) also controlled as persons.
