Border markers Border marker nr. 193 of the Dutch-Prussian series is located on the actual tripoint. Nowadays border marker nr. 194 and up form the border between the Netherlands and the German "Bundesland" of North Rhine-Westphalia. At the same time this marker also bears number 1032 as part of the present Belgian-German border. Border marker nr. 1 of the Dutch-Belgian border is located 100 meters to the north on Dutch soil, as part of the "touristic" monument.
On the Belgian side of the tripoint, one can see the borders of the former neutral territory of Moresnet in the pavement. Between 1839 and 1919, this location was a quadripoint. Today it is still a quadripoint on municipal level, because the old border between Belgium and Moresnet is now the municipal border between Kelmis and Plombières.
