Too bad it's not exactly on the tripoint, because that's in the middle of the river.

On the beach between Świnoujście and Seebad Ahlbeck






The view on the border on the Polish site. This is a street between Świnoujście and Seebad Ahlbeck on the Uznam (Usedom) Island. Here was a border checkpoint, only for cyclist and walker.

Since Poland joined the Schengen area, are you allowed to cross the border on the beach?

Well, on other pics I've seen the the DE-PL beach border, there were barbed wire fences on there. So it isn't very inviting to make a nice walk across the border
btw, on mat2230's pictures, you still see fences, though the wire seems to be gone.

Sure, you can cross the border ANYWHERE, the other thing is if you're able to

On those pics the wire is of course gone.

Interesting. Those long waiting lines are so 1960's. Especially for this tiny portion of Russia. They should abolish all border controls for the Kaliningrad Oblast. It's surrounded with Schengen. They also should lift visa's for Kaliningrad.

Aren't there lots of people in Kaliningrad that want it to be independent? It would save a lot of waiting time when they make the rules less strict. But it's Russia, so forget it

Finland - Russia

Along the entire Russian border, there are truck queues, because of the detailed paperwork required at the Russian border control. The large increase in traffic because of Russian economic growth increases the truck queues all the time, even though the Russians try to increase the capacity.

On the Finnish side the quese can be 50 km long. This photo is from a road camera 5 km from the border. A special truck lane has been built. Further away cars use a minor road instead of E18 because trucks queue on E18.



This is the border control on E18 on the Finnish side.

Cicerón,

Is that possible that they are dismantling the border infrastructure between France and Spain, that's incredible. If that is true, I hope it will happen also on the other motorway border, near Perpignan.

@BIL: that's horrible. It must take days for those poor truckers to get through. Aren't there any other truck crossings?

Well I think that the borders with Ukraine show a quite similar spectacle and as I know the ukrainian officers happily take bribe, otherwise you have to wait for many hours. The fastest way is to park the car before, pass through the border by foot and then taking a taxi on the other side. You can see that at the border between Slovakia and Ukraine,Vysne Nemecke - Uzgorod.

Well, they have dismantled the old border infrastructure, but...

They have dismantled the old toll booths (7 for France and 6 for Spain), and they're building the new ones (10 for each country) in the same place where the old "customs" were. However, they are building a new "Bureau ŕ Contrôles Nationaux Juxtaposés (BCNJ) / Oficina de Controles Nacionales Yuxtapuestos (OCNY)".

Ok ok but this new building will be all over the motorway, or just on the side for every sense of march?I mean if they are going again to mount booth for border control, or to keep the motorway passage free? I think that rebuilding the control booth would be a violation of the Schengen agreement, as there is said that every member country has to remove any obstacle to let the vehicle pass through smoothly!
