I visited this point as part of the IBRG DEDK21 expedition. Kruså is an interesting border crossing as there are 2 crossing points adjacent to one another. One is an old narrow road demarcated with border markers and ending with a divided garage that straddles the border. The other is a modern dual carriageway with check points due to the COVID 19 protocols in place. The markers were not easy to find due to vegetation. Discussions with Danish group members indicate that BM #19a has been lost and probably buried in the last 20 years.

This crossing was marked by border markers and national and regional signs.
