This border crossing can be found in between De Lutte in the Netherlands and Bad Bentheim in Germany. In the old days the border was crossed by merchants and smugglers on secret trails in the forest. Today the border is hardly visible anymore and turned into a delightful area where residents and visitors can discover the best of both the Netherlands and Germany.
The climbing tower is part of a chain of five wooden climbing stations along cycling and hiking trails along the German-Dutch border in Grafschaft Bentheim. The other four experience stations can be found in Emlichheim, Uelsen, Neuenhaus and Nordhorn.
