  • I thought it was strange to be in a point that according to where you moved the foot was in Netherlands, Belgium or Germany. The wooded area surrounding it is wonderful. We were in autumn and I loved the colors of the vegetation. Good place to go for a walk and enjoy the mountain. There are also some towers which you can upload and enjoy the views. There are several restaurants by area and a bar with terrace at the point in question.
