Büsingen, German enclave inside Switzerland
Boundary marker no. 123 - in the street - between      Schaffhausen/Sw. and the German enclave of Büsingen.
Boundary marker no. 978 near Büsingen/GE. GB means Grossherzogtum Baden.

Llivia, Spanish enclave inside France
Border France-Spanish enclave of Llivia.
Sign "Termino de Llivia". Change in road surface. Previously this was a "transit" road allowing people to reach the Spanish "mainland" without any French control - today after "Schengen" there's no more border between Spain and France.
