Yes, Hungary was the first country to open its borders with the Iron Curtain to the west, resulting in eastern Germans to travel to West Germany via Czechoslovakia, Hungary and Austria.

[QUOTE=cinxxx;103700919]Tripoint A/HU/SK

Good job!

The eastmost point in Austria achieved as well. Anyway the border stone "1922" might be a bit misleading. There has been the tripoint not before 1947 after Czechoslovakia - accordingly to Parisien peace agreement - had gained (from Hungary) 3 villages - Rusovce/Oroszvár, Jarovce/Horvátjarfalu, Čuňovo/Dunacsún. Nowadays they are southern suburbs of Bratislava.

The tripoint after 1920 (Trianon):

Another tripoints in Czechoslovakia between WW1 and WW2:

it seems that the "1922" border stone is between Hungary and Austria, so the date is correct.

Well, you are right, I have just tried to comment the fact that the historical background at this tripoint is more tricky. And more, the Austrian border line (Kittsee....) is part of Burgenland, originally it was part of West-Hungary (Őrvidék)......

The field road leading to the border with Austria from Rajka




Field roads from every country to the tripoint






Road in Austria that goes on the border with Hungary (right)

Well, hello! I spend the last few days browsing this thread, don't even know how I ended up here. First photo from me:

Border Crossing D(A64)-L(A1)



I am about to do a road trip and I will visit the Tripoint H-SRB-RO - Is it true I can walk around in a diameter of a few meters? Opinions vary from googling answers.

Best time to visit is of course last weekend of May, when official temporary border crossing is open.

I also tried to find some info about visiting outside that time, I think I read something about if coming from RO, you must previously inform the police and then you can drive the (asphalted) road that goes exactly to the border with Serbia in the area. I think you can walk to the tripoint but only on RO ground, take photos only from there, and should not take pictures of foreign personnel.

One of our members went on a ceremony the other day http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showpo...&postcount=251 that is when the border is fully open, last week of May or smth like that. Only Romania made a paved access road to the tripoint.

These are the routes from Hungary and Austria http://goo.gl/maps/oN647
From Slovakia you can drive to Rajka (HU) or Deutsch Jahrndorf (A) and take the same routes as above.

The road through Austria is the best since it's paved until the border crossing with Hungary. There you can leave the car and do a short walk to the tripoint.

Driving directly through Slovakia there should be this one, but I'm not sure if it's safe to drive with any kind of car after leaving the motorway (by foot or by bike it's ok)

Another inconspicious border crossing riding the E44 from Luxembourg to Longwy (FR) - funny thing is, that you are going through Belgium for about 1 km on the Av. de l'Europe Google Maps
