Later the iron curtain divided both countries.

Nowadays the border looks friendly and it is hard to believe not too long ago this was an inaccesible border.

I start my walk along the border between Austria and Hungary at the tripoint with Slovakia.

Here border marker A.19 can be found. A curious number, as the numbers start here, counting towards the southwest.

The markers have the year 1922, the border has been formed after the first World War.

Also there is a three-country-bench near the tripoint (but fully within Austria).

I found out the road on the Hungarian side has only recently be turned into an asphalted road. A few years ago this was still a gravel road.

I rejoin the border near Jennersdorf. Close to stone C.123. 4. a watchtower is placed. This tower has not been here originally, it has been bought in Hungary and is placed here later as a remainder to the iron curtain. I am very glad that one can cross the border so easily nowadays, but I think it is also good to not forget the past, so I liked this place a lot. Not in the last place because you were able to climb the watchtower freely.

It is a pleasant walk through the forest. Some of the markers are single, sometimes they are at both sides of the path.

The first part goes through an interesting ditch.

I missed stone C.124.3 here.

It is possible that I missed double markers, or they are gone. Especially when the letters are not on both sides of the stone I assume this is the case.
