(30b) - Bayrisch Eisenstein (D) / Zelezná Ruda (CZ)

Taking the German Federal National Road 11 from Bavarian town Zwiesel in northern direction, you will reach the border town Bayrisch Eisenstein after 10 miles: a railway station building can be found there, located half on German and half on Czech territory...

the rail next to the door marks the border.

Inside the building:

Border stone on the floor marks the border, and 'DB' is the abbreviation for 'Germany-Bavaria', while "CS" is the old abbreviation for Czechoslovaquia.

Inside the building:

board on a rope saying "STAATSGRENZE - kein Durchgang - Eingang über das Hauptportal".
(=meaning: "State Boundary - no entry - entrance via main door")
