20 years after Germany's unification: 10 divided towns

Reply Thu 30 Sep, 2010 12:03 am
But they are without wall, of course, and you can cross the border without showing ID-papers, like elsewhere within the Schengen-countries.

Rheinfelden/Switzerland and Rheinfelden/Germany

Herzogenrath/Germany and Kerkrade/Netherlands

Bocholt-Suderwick/Germany and Aaalten-Dinxperlo/Netherlands
Similar to other German/Dutch towns, this as an example:
One street in Dinxperlo, Heelweg, is partly German. The road itself lies in the Netherlands, but one side of the housing zone is in Germany (where it is called Hellweg). The houses there belong to the small town of Suderwick, which might be translated as "southern area". Also, Dinxperlo houses a shared Dutch-German police station.

Kleinblittersdorf/Germany and Grossblittersdorf/France

Wasserbilligerbrück/Germany and Wasserbillig/Luxembourg

Bollendorf/Germany and Bollendorf-Pont/Luxembourg

Bayerisch-Gmain/Germany and Großgmain/Austria

Bayerisch Eisenstein/Germany and Železná Ruda/Czech Republic
It is one of a trio of connected places in the area. The other two are Železná Ruda (German: Böhmisch Eisenstein or Markt Eisenstein) and Špičák (German: Dorf Eisenstein), both in Czech Republic. Železná Ruda lies 2 kilometres northeast from Bayerisch Eisenstein. The town's railway station is split by the border.

Frankfurt/Oder /Germany and Słubice/Poland
