So if we want to experience a border control in the Netherlands we should go to Germany soon

Bah, stupid reason. It's all Albania's and Croatia's fault. Or maybe just Albania's.

So does this mean that border guards will be posted on all roads, even the tiny two-lane ones, just for two weeks?

This will mean that main roads will be controlled 24/7, and those minor only at random.

It would be impossible to controll the whole border, as you still can cross it everywhere.

Really? Even when a Schengen member reintroduces border control, you may still cross its border anywhere, even in woods?

There are countless border crossings from the Netherlands to Germany, ranging from motorways to some trails in the woods. It's impossible to control them all. I even doubt that those very small crossings were closed/controlled before 1993.

What about that town where one side of the street is in Germany while the other is in the Netherlands?

Like this one:



Furthermore, some pictures of the bordercontrol between the Netherlands (A1) and Germany (A30) on 20th of June 2006 (had to do with the European championship soccer in Germany those days - when we returned later on a small road there was no control at all).

Approaching the border - left lane is closed.


Motorway closed - traffic is forced to leave the motorway here for the servicearea. Note the German speedsign right, whilst we still are in the Netherlands.


The border with Germany is halfway the exit


Dutch police on the right (although this is alreay Germany)


German police on the right. Although the sign said so, none was forced to stop, even not the Polish fans in the car ahead of me. (but I had to wait for some traffic from the left)


Even more German police (on the left)


That's it, leaving the service-area and back on the motorway on the German side of the border.

What I'm interested in - does this mean that the 'other' country will have controls, too?

For instance, will there be dual Polish/German controls on that border?

If so, I'm going for a little trip...

I don't think that you will be checked twice. I think that you will just be checked once, just like when Poland was in the EU, but not yet in Schengen

Well, there certainly used to be double controls on the land borders in those days - although I only ever used Swiecko/Frankfurt and Kostrzyn/Kietz. As Poland has systematic exit controls, as does Germany - this is what raises the question, will Poland check?

We have no business in controling our border during the NATO summit.

How do you mean?

If Schengen is suspended in Germany and France - doesn't logic dictate that PL et al should be checking too?
