I do not know about quadripoint between countries, but there is one in the US: the "Four corners" between Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada and Utah:

I just found an article about such things in the world: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quadripoint.

There actually are no quadripoints on international boundary (despite the fact that it might look like on on larger scale maps where Angola, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Namibia meet at the Sambesi River in Southwestern Africa.

But a closer look reaveals that there are two threepoints several 100 metres apart in the river.

From a distance, Kazakhstan, Russia, Mongolia and China seem to form a quadripoint, but there's about 10 km between the two tripoints, so no quadripoint unfortunately.

The path looks broken. So they actually put it in the middle of the river?

All right, we must not be outdone.

Here is the PL-CZ-SK tripoint.
Access from the Polish side is very easy while getting there from SK/CZ will require a little bit of legwork but if you are fit enough, it won't be too bad.
The actual tripoint is at the bottom of a brook as shown in Fig. 5.

Fotos are from the internet.


Fig. 1 - general map showing the location of the tripoint (schody = stairs, most = bridge, droga = road). The white triangles indicate the location of the three monuments in Fig. 3, which curiously are located on each country's soil rather than forming one monolith.



Fig. 2 - stairs leading to the tripoint along the PL-CZ border, which runs approximaltely through the handrail. Poland is on the left, Czech Rep is on the right while Slovakia is in the background.




Fig. 3 - tripoint monuments: CZ, PL and SK.



Fig. 4 - tripoint bridge looking from Poland towards Slovakia



Fig. 5 - the actual tripoint is located at the bottom of this brook.

How long before the barriers at that square are removed with the Schengen enlargement?

Even though both countries are in Schengen, the barriers are there to stay, because obviously they don't want to make a roundabout out of the square; it's meant for pedestrians. I think it's ridiculous how it's called differently in both countries. We should've named it "Europe Half-Square".

Border stone between France and Swtzerland. France is behind the stone, while Switzerland is where the photographer stood. Notice the bear on the Swiss side of the stone. It's the symbol of the Bern canton. The Bern canton used to have a border with France, but in 1979 the Jura canton seceded from the Bern canton and so it is now the Jura canton that is bordering France and not the Bern canton anymore, yet they didn't change the border stone.

Border stone between France and Italy. As you can see, France is still a kingdom ruled by the Bourbons, and Italy is still a kingdom ruled by the House of Savoy.
