The Three Country Point Labyrinth is located in Vaals, the Netherlands, which serves a crossroad for the citizens of Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany. It was built in 1992 by British landscape designer and artist Adrian Fisher. The frontline labyrinth constituted by 17000 hornbeam shrubs has been designed to have three extremal points, with lots of branched and spiral trails and water barriers, and in the middle of the maze there is a tower shaped platform opening a picturesque view of the surroundings. The Three Country Point Labyrinth is one of Europe's most difficult. It is a special location for many reasons. As the highest point of the Netherlands, town of Vaals has for nearly 200 years been a hub of economic relations for the surrounding areas.

The Three Country Point Labyrinth is an original symbol of international cooperation.
