Help all please.

We are considering a detour via the 3 countries point in Aachen. Don’t want to head up there towing the van if I can’t park or am likely to get stuck.

Does anyone have any experience of this so I know if I’m likely to get stuck?

Thanks in advance and hopefully fast as we travel from Holland to Luxembourg via there tomorrow!!

We were going there last summer but had to cancel the holiday at very short notice. But the advice was to find a local site nearby.

Okay, thanks for that. Looks like we might have to give it a miss then because we are only passing through on our way to Luxembourg.

We were going for our main stay in Luxembourg in Larochette Camping Auf Kengert. It is nice base for visiting two places we particularly wanted to see, Bastogne and Trier. Then the second half of the trip was to be further south in the Vosges.
So it’s staycation this year and if the dogs and us hold out until 2020 the 2018 holiday plans will be resurrected.

Enjoy your trip.

That’s where we are staying tomorrow night, but just for the night. Not to worry about the 3 countries thing

Ok so we’ve stayed here just for the night.

It’s up on the top of hills with some narrow-ish roads with hairpins to get to it.
The pitch is large enough but access is hard with a large outfit. There are lots of Dutch in tiny vans but all packed really close together. (They were very helpful and the motor mover was a godsend)

I’m praying nothing has changed for our route back off the site as it’s extremely tight (for a beginner) we are staying here for another single night next Sunday so will see how that goes- Next stop today: Interlaken

This is our pitch (not worth setting anything up)


This is the route back out:
