We visit Vaals where the meeting point of the Netherlands, Germany and Belgium is marked by the soaring Tripoint watchtower. Aachen boasts the landmark Elisenbrunnen Fountain, Cologne is home to a cathedral that houses the Shrine of the Three Kings and Brussels boasts the sprawling Grand Place. Our base is the Hotel Walram, located close to the centre of Valkenburg.
