Those two columns were placed there in 1728 when the road was passed by Charles VI, Holy Roman Emperor.

I don't know, I've never been there, but I doubt you'd find police there (except maybe at the intersection with the main road). You're probably fine going by motorbike, but I wouldn't drive there by car, people would probably look strangely at you. Just be careful not to roll over since it's so steep.

Intersting that the old border stones stanads much lower in the Kokra canyon. They marked regional border between Kranjska and Koroška:

Germany-Belgium border Losheimergraben(B265/N626/N632)



A German 50 sign and an Belgian one a few meter behind,can you see the difference



Belgium-Germany border on the road Schönberg-Bleialf






Germany-Belgium border on the A60-A27 Trier-Liege.the sign we se is a little bit strange,its a German sign but the motorway number is Belgian



Belgium-Germany,the bridge connects Stoubach with Stupbach



Germany-Belgium,2km away from the last picture this bridge connects Welchenhausen with Oberhausen



This is a 3 way dance on the Road Ouren-Lieler.We stand in Belgium,in front of us is Luxembourg,on the left side Germany(but there is no road to Germany,you must swim or better say walk thru the river Our to get there)



Luxembourg-Belgium on the Road Clervaux-Vielsalm.The blue Belgian sign reaches on Luxembourgoise territory,better be careful,who knows what major problems that could cause

Nice catch with the A27/E42 sign. I've driven there many times, but every time I went southbound and northbound via another route, so I've never seen this sign before.

That's because Jezersko used to be in Carinthia, not Carniola.

It is very interesting, and related with international borders.

Written in Spanish, translation of this blog entrance would be: "In the other side of the fence they are much rich. The borders more unequal in the world".

They get all borders abroad and compare the economic data according to international monetary fund and take wich lines have the largest differences in one and other side.

Top 40 is Hong-Kong Vs China. They say that even if HK is part of China, the different economic system makes a largest differences in one and other side (and Macau-China is even bigger)

Top 1 is Niger Vs Libia.
Niger is 27,6 times richer than Libia

Here you have the 40 cases.


There are some pictures of borders all world wide very nice.

Should you need help with translation, ask for it via PM

This is obviously a mistake, it's the other way round. The blog itself says correctly in the caption:
Quote:
Tres cuartas partes de los nigerinos viven con menos de dos dólares al día. En Libia, al menos antes de la guerra civil, eso no existía.

Three quarters of the Niger people live with less than 2 dollars per day. In Lybia, at least before the civil war, this did not exist.

Thanks for correction. I read the blog very quickly and I posted here, thinking in reading later carefully.

I will write in the blog remembering the mistake.

Border between Netherlands and Belgium near Antwerpen at the point where the Schelde river enters the Netherlands. An (almost) abandoned road ends on the border
Location: https://maps.google.nl/?ll=51.37533,...01929&t=m&z=16


Here:


The border marker. Netherlands right, Belgium left, with the Schelde river


Looking from the other side: You can see the industrial area of Antwerpen at the right


Some close-ups of the border marker








There is a small road from here to the Belgian N101 (Scheldelaan). Not an official road, but from the Dutch side there are no no-entry signs, so I decided to cross the border here

Still in the Netherlands


Just before joining the Belgian N101 (visible on the right). The border is nor marked, but should run here somewhere.



Bonus: Motorway border between Belgium (A12) and Netherlands (A4). Mind the difference in surface

Nice border.

Let's continue Benelux, then.

Luxembourg left, Belgium right.

Martelange even has multiple gas stations of the same brand along that road.

The downside is that there aren't many other gas stations in southeastern Belgium. For instance along E25 from Ličge to Arlon, there are no gas stations. There's even a quite large rest area at Arlon with an overhead bridge restaurant - but no gas station.

Even if you get off at an exit? (As Americans are used to doing anyway...)

Not to my knowledge. There is hardly anything of significance between Ličge and Arlon. Traffic volumes on E25 are rather low, dipping to 20.000 vehicles per day. The most important town is Bastogne, but the Luxembourg border is only a few kilometers away so I guess most people gas up in Luxembourg.

Being aware I will be passing close to Lux, I would not refuel until I get there even if Belgians, French, Dutch or Germans offered a free breakfast or so, on their petrol station.
