I think it's the other way round, the built up side is Mexico, and the walls, fences and searchlights are in the US...

I agree totally. If you have anymore it would be great to see them. Google Street View contains quite a few.

The Belgian/NL border is fascinating in how open it is and by the sheer number of twists and turns it does.

This website has photos of most of the BE/NL border cairns (grenspaal)

Does anybody know when any border buildings were removed at the various crossings.

Northwest Angle is one of the few unguarded border crossings in the U.S. since it is essentially cut off from the US and the fact that it is mostly unpopulated. To check in with customs you have to enter a phone booth and call either US or Canada Customs.

Nieuw Statenzijl

The border between Germany and The Netherlands at Nieuw Statenzijl.



Nieuw Statenzijl (litterally: New State's Sluice) is very small village at the border with approximately 5 houses. The Westerwoldse Aa river looks like a border river, but both banks are Dutch.

The lock and pumps are just on the Dutch side of the border.

The river's mouth into the Dollart Bay.

Left of the dike is Germany. You can alway recognise the Dutch-German border by the windmills, which the Germans have put along the border almost anywhere. The general Dutch opinion is that they are spoiling our landscape.

The border. Only cyclists and pedestrians can cross the border here. When the weather is nice, German border police might be encountered. I once got a warning when I forgot my passport and two border police officers suddenly popped out of that wooden shelter.

The border is cleary visible when standing on top of the dike. Left is The Netherlands, right is Germany. On the very left, you see a Birdwatching Cabin.

You can see industrial buildings in Emden. It's clear Emden is in Germany, but both countries have different opinions about the location of the border in the Dollart and Ems. Dutch maps show the border just off the German coast, German maps show it just off the Dutch coast.

This is actually the northernmost bordercrossing between both countries. Borderstone 203-II is next to the fence.

That border, is, IMHO, one the most stark contrasts between any two countries anywhere on the planet, much more so than the Mexico-USA border. I am not aware of any legal land crossings between them.

You sure you don't have the countries reversed? Tijuana, on the Mexican side, is a very dense city; the U.S. side of the border's less urban (central San Diego is some distance north).

Check out Google Maps: http://maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&ll=3...,0.132008&z=13

EDIT: I see someone's already addressed this. Would delete this if I could figure out how....

That picture is at least 20 years old. I've seen it before in a book I have from the 1980s. God knows what the situation is like now...
