Some pictures from and around the border Netherlands-Belgium.

To drive from Breda to Zundert, the shortest route is to take the N263. But the fastest way is to drive some kilometres through Belgium. After Zundert the rest of the N263 to Belgium.

Map

1. Exit to the N263 (which leads through Zundert)


2. Galder interchange


3. Last exit before the border


4. Belgium 1 km.


5. Entering Belgium


6. To be more precisely: Flandres


7. Keep your distance


8. Exit Meer. The Dutch town of Zundert is already shown here.


9. Mill


10. Exit Meer. This road is signed as the E19, but also has the number A1.


11. Exit Meer


12. +13. The N146 to Zundert



14. The Belgian N146


15. Without any warning: The border (see the border marker)


16. Dutch speedsign.


17. Entering Zundert


18. And now we are joining the N263


19. +20. Zundert



21. Leaving Zundert


22. +23. Entering and leaving Wernhout



24. + 25. The road to Belgium: Max. 80 km/h and speedchecks.



26.+27.+28. Suddenly: Entering Belgium




29. First sign in Belgium


30. Entering Wuustwezel


31. Big roadsign on a house

An interesting road as well is the 'neutral road' (neutrale weg) between Koningsbosch en Schinveld. The road is entirely located on German territory, a part that used to be Dutch after WWII, I think until 1963.

Until a few years ago it was not allowed to stop along this road and there were no exits to the German villages nearby. On both sides there were numerous signs about what was allowed or rather what was not.

A few years ago, the road was officially handed over to Germany and now it looks just like any road. A big problem was the fact that people gererally drove very fast here and there have been numerous accident. Nowadays, the road is much safer. People in the region still call it the 'neutral road' and for people in towns like Landgraaf en Brunssum it is still the shortest way to go to more northern parts of the country...

Funny were the unique signs 'Nederland' and 'Duitsland', different from any other bordersign in The Netherlands.

Some more borderpictures from the Belgian bordertown Essen.

Map.

1.The (Belgian) N117 towards the bordertown of Essen


2. Just 11 kilometres to Essen


3. Road closed. For Wuustwezel: Go back!


4. Dangerous overtaking on a nice road.


5. Essen: The big sign with "Nederland 2km" can be seen from here. That is to road to Roosendaal but we enter Essen here.


6. +7. Essen



8. Leaving Essen and leaving Belgium. You can see the border marker


9. Looking back into Essen


10. This road is interesting: De Grensstraat (borderstreet) at the north of Essen. The border is marked here: Left Belgium, right the Netherlands.


11. Grensstraat: Belgian road, but the houses on the right are Dutch (but can only be reached via Belgium)


12. Belgian streetsign "Grensstraat" right on the border: The other streetsign is Dutch.


13. Again a Duch street beginning from this Grensstraat.


14. +15. Approaching the railwaytrack Antwerpen - Netherlands.



16. + 17.On the railwaycrossing: Looking left: The borderstation of Essen. Looking right: The border where with symbols is indicated that also for the railwaycompanies the border runs here. A bordermarker for trains, you couls say



18. Bordermarker on the left instead of right. I must have crossed the border without noticing it.


19. A closer look: Signage for long-distance walkings. It's a Dutch sign but on Belgian soil.

A few pics from the SLO/I border near Lazaret. Sorry about the shitty weather. From here to Trieste, the road was often partly flooded due to this bad weather. That's why I don't have pics from this crossing on our way back, because we took the main road.

[IMG]http://i26.************/6y2ofm.jpg[/IMG]

[IMG]http://i32.************/k1fg51.jpg[/IMG]

That's all, I didn't take more because of the weather and because some Italian officers were looking very angrily at us

WOW! Quite a big difference compared to 1992 when I crossed the border over here. I see that Croatian and Hungarian customs are combined?

since the motorways are connected, there is new border crossing for cars (LKW still use old one). it is controled together by HR and H officers. i expected larger border crossing, at least like old HR side. i have posted about one year ago photos from old border crossing.

I/SLO border SS15-H5

These pictures have been taken later on that rainy day, on our way back to Slovenia.

1. Approaching the border station.



2.



3. Enough signs to tell you that a vignette is required for Slovene motorways.



4. Border station.



5. OMV gas station.



6. Expressway starts - from here a vignette is needed.



That's it. When we drove back to the Netherlands we used this crossing again, so I'll post those pics soon (in sunny weather )

Oh yeah

SLO/I border H5-SS15

Same border station, but in the other direction. This time the sun was shining

1. Last exit before the border.



2. Border station ahead.



3.



4. There it is.



5. No control anymore.



6. Change of pavement. Since there is a sign saying "Italia" I assume that this is the actual border



7.



That's it, hope you liked it

Timon, I think SS15 is only the old road; I think the new expressway has no national number, just E751.

Yes, a historic ducoment I always wondered why the stamps never showed "Yugoslavia", "SFRJ", or something else which indicated the country.
