Not far from were my mom lives lies castle Lüntenbeck. The castle can be dated back to the early 13th century, and is a former residence of the knights of Berg.
The temperatures were mild and we saw definite signs of spring.
Saturday we ventured out towards Aachen to visit friends in the area. We were a bit early and decided to take a detour to the city of Vaals in Holland. The Vaalser Mountain (323m or 1,059 ft) belongs to the foothills of the Ardennes, and marks not only the highest (!) point in the Netherlands, but also the border triangle of Germany, Netherlands and Belgium.
We climbed the watch tower to admire the panorama.
A view towards Germany.
Now overlooking Belgium.
And a panoramic shot of the famous Dutch "mountain range".
