Lux / Be / De - (Ouren)

Tripoint Ouren

3 Tripoints

∆ Northeast with Belgium and Germany at Ouren

∆ Southeast with France and Germany at Schengen.
∆ Southwest with France and Belgium at Rodange

Besides this, Schengen is wellknown for the agreement for EU, signed at 4 june 1985 and the

implementation agreement, signed at 19 june 1990. This was signed on board of mv. 'Princes Marie-Astrid,

which was moored to the buoy, which is anchored in the water of the Moselle exactly at the border triangle.

As a matter fact, is the picture on the left not quit right. Bordermarkers on both sides of a flew, brook or river indicates that the border is situated exactly in the middle of that flew, brook or river..

This indicates that the border of B/L should be more backwards and the border of B/D should be more to the left. So actually there's a small condominium!

Barry Anold (IBRG) does write more about this discrepancy here on his website. Harry ten Veen explains it as well on his website.

In the North part of Luxembourg the borders of Luxembourg, Belgium and Germany (De), come together in the river Ouren. Here's the tripoint of Lux / Be / De situated at the place where brook 'Ribbach' ends in the 'Our'. This brook actually is the border between Lux / Be.

Actually there's more to see, because the border of Lux / Be is only a few meters situated away from the tripoint.

Of course, the flags of the signatory countries are not missing. Because Nl and Lux have the same flag, the European Union flag hangs here as the 6th flag.
