I was there too many times and my passport was stamped with a stamp where there was the image of a bicycle instead of a car, as in other Slovak stamps.

Five-border trip from Switzerland to Hungary in April 2011:

1. Switzerland -> Liechtenstein (A13 -> Schaan)
No formalities whatsoever, just coat-of-arms and flag - despite this being a border between a Schengen member (CH) and non-member (FL) country.



2. Liechtenstein -> Austria (Schaanwald -> Feldkirch)
Notice the sign asking to prepare passport for Austrian customs.



3. Austria -> Germany (A14 -> A96)
Autobahn, without any stop (German officials nevertheless continuously watch incoming traffic in (often unmarked) patrol cars at the border).



4. Germany -> Austria (A8 -> A1)
Autobahn once again.



The last one, Austria -> Hungary was already in dark that day, so
5. Hungary -> Austria (Sopron -> Klingenbach) instead:
(approaching the border from Hungary, it is already visible in the background)

I went hiking today on the Bavarian Alps, on the Hochplatte near Linderhof, Garmisch-Partenkirchen. The mountain is totally in Germany, but the beginning of the path was in Austria, so we crossed the border here:


and I took a couple of pics. The border itself (Staatsgrenze) was in the middle of a small bridge:



but the usual EU border mark was 30 meters on German side:


Coming from the other direction I only saw "Republik Österreich - 1 km" but not the actual sign.

This is between Figuig (Morocco) and Beni Oukil (Algeria). 7km between 2 cities.

There was an attack in Marrakesh in 1994 (2 spanish tourists dead), made by 2 french from algerian origine.

Morocco imposed to algerians a visa. Algeria did'nt accept it and closed the border.

No, Algeria imposed the end of Western Sahara issue before to open it. But, we hope that border will open soon because 1 million algerians tourists go to Tunisia in summer and Tunisia is not 100% safety. So algerians need to found an other country for holiday.

Don't think vacations are a major issue nowadays in the region...

Grenspad (B)-(F)
Forgivable OT(hopefully)



















France on the left, Belgium on the right.

Belgium.


Border's ballard, I suppose.


Looking towards South.

Direction Belgium.


















Going back to France.

A typically understated border between the Republic of Ireland & the UK...



Only the sign telling you to use MPH (KM/H the other way) highlights the border. There's not even signs to tell you what local authority you're entering into, let alone the actual state.

Popperinge(B) - Stenvoorde(F)

Double border.

Entering France for the first time.




Barely visible(sun not in favour) French EU stars on the right.




Belgium on the left, France right. This road is divided by two neighbouring countries.


After some 2 kilometres we can see proper border's crossing booths.




Entering France again.




First petrol station in the Republic.

I am constantly amazed that two countries that have had such terrible tensions between themselves off and on over the past century have never had any controls whatsoever along their common land border.

There used to be until the mid 90's (I think). All the main roads had army & RUC checkpoints but the minor roads were blocked with concrete blocks or had the road destroyed. The checking of passports wasn't really a concern for obvious reasons.

Generally people were allowed free movement from one country to another with the main customs activity at the entry points for people arriving from overseas. Even from mainland Britain.

I'm guessing the fact such controls proved completely ineffective?! Besides, the british army had one hell of a job controlling that entire county line between the 6 counties and the Irish Republic!
