Vaals is a town in the extreme southeastern part of the Dutch province of Limburg,
which in its turn finds itself in the southeastern part of the Netherlands. The municipality
covers an area of 23.87 km2 (9.22 sq mi) in the foothills of the Ardennes–Eifelrange and
is located about 23 km (14 mi) east of Maastricht and 5 km (3.1 mi) west of the city
centre of Aachen. It borders on both Belgium and Germany. The three borders meet on
the Drielandenpunt, a few meters from the highest point in the European part of the
Netherlands, the Vaalserberg. The Vaalserberg used to be called "Hubertusberg".
