Is that all?
Well, the motorway (AutoBrennero) crossing Italy and Austria is much more interesting than this one.
All sorrounded by mountains.

btw, I see there are a lot of works around this border.
On the Austrian side they did a mall and there are some modern facilities (I don't know the function of them) going to be built.

Yeah, but the difference is on the Brenner Autobahn, you have been driving for two hours through the mountains, which makes the border crossing not particular special compared to the past 100 or 200 km.

At Walserberg, it's a real distinctive border crossing, this is the last peak, once you enter Germany, the mountains are much farther away from the motorway.

I also like this one on the A7 (D) in Füssen - Fernpass (A). You run through a tunnel and when you're out, you suddenly enters Austria and the interior Alps with all its views

Unfortunately there were foggy conditions today, but still I have visited some bordercrossings between Belgium and the Netherlands (roughely between Hazeldonk and Poppel). The images are clickable for larger versions.

The noterhmost point of Belgium. (Location). First as seen from the Netherlands, then from Belgium.



A little bit more to the east at Meersel-Dreef: The white café is on Belgium territory, you can see the borderstone on the 2nd and 3rd picture. (Location)




The border at Strijbeek. The bortder is on the small bridge (with marker). See the prehistoric Dutch speedsign (no speed for built-up areas of name of the country).










The Grazenseweg, in de middle of nowhere.







The road between Meerle (B) and Ulicoten (NL).





Also in the middle-of-nowhere: The Haldijk. An old sign with "Rijksgrens" ('imperial border') marks the border towards the Netherlands. No markings/signs in Belgian direction.









I tried to cross the border here from B to NL, but there is no asphalt on the Dutch side. Since I don;'t have a 4x4, I turned at the bridge which forms the border.









I tried to reach the Dutch village of Castelré from Minderhout (B), but about 1 km after the border, the road was closed. Back again via Belgium. Towards Belgium, the only sign tha you have crossed the border is the sign of "Minderhout" (Location.) .









I drove from Merksplas to the tiny Belgian town of "Zondereigen". Close to the border a monument of a fence where the Dutch had punt some current on during the First Worldwar (to prevent people fleeding across the border, since Belgium was occupied and the Netherlands were neutral in those days). The border is not marked here.











Then to Baarle-Nassau (NL) and Baarle-Hertog (B), wich is known for its many enclaves. In the town, the border is marked in some streets (dotted on streetS, and with crosses on foothpaths). If you want to know in whcih country a house is: You can watch the flag (Belgian or Dutch) on the housenumbersigns. And shops with their internetaddress are good to see in which country they are located


















The N260 south of Baarle-Nassau, whcih connects Belgium with tne Belgian envalces in Baarle-Hertog.





The border between the Dutch N260 and the Belgian N119





At the border, there is a little street to the west which runs along the border. A sign for cyclists show both the Dutch and the Belgian name for Baarle. Also, a posibillity to cross the (unmarked) border here.




Dutch speedsign on the N260


West of the N260 is a Belgian envlace. No markings here. The fence and trees are in Belgium, the street is Dutch. There are about 10 houses in this enclave. (Location).




Southeast of Baarle is a small crossing near a camping. No markings on Belgian side, at the Dutch sigbn the well-known EU-sign.







A bit more to the north is Veldbraak. No markings at all, only the surface changes here..





To the border between Baarle and Poppel (B). The border is on a small bridge.








From Poppel to the north: N12 (BE) to N630 (NL).

Great pics

Would you be so kind to make at least half of them visible already in a bigger size?

edit: sorry, I couldn't wait

Great pics! Baarle-Hertog is an interesting place. My aunt used to live in Baarle-Nassau, but unfortunately not any more.

Sorry for that, I thought they would be more visible that way. If you wish, I can undo the changes.

Any news about Bratislava - Jarovce for instance?

What about it? It opened in november 2007, it was operational for like one month. Quite a waste of money, but now a good place to get an Austrian or Slovak vignette.

There were some works going on on the Austrian side, I'm curious if Slovaks started dismantling as well.

Slovaks are waiting till it will fall apart. BTW, it was operational for more than one month, it was possible to get to Austria via this border crossing years before A6 was built, but almost noone used it. You can see it in Google Maps: http://maps.google.sk/?ie=UTF8&hq=&h...09645&t=k&z=17 where A6 is U/C, but the crossing is in operation.

Baarle is amazing! Definitely one of its own sort. I read, there is even house with both Dutch nbr 2 and Belgian 16. It happened cause a person dwelling the mentioned house has a front door exactly on the borderline. And there is a policy in Baarle saying: in which country your front door is this country the house belongs to, even if 90% of a building is located, let's say in Belgium though having its main entrance on Dutch side, according to local rules, that house lays in the Netherlands.

Those are the two crossings from Tijuana to San Diego. San Ysidro crossing (the bigger one) is supposedly the biggest crossing in the world.
