Some info over the strange dutch/Belgian enclave's Baarle-Nassau/Hertog lying in the south of the Netherlands

At some 100 km distance from Amsterdam and Brussels, the village BAARLE lies in the heart of the Kempen and central in the fictitious triangle Tilburg, Turnhout, Breda. Baarle itself is to be found on the border of the provinces Antwerp (Belgium) and North-Brabant (Netherlands). So to speak, since it is not simply a village divided in two by a border.

It is unequivocally the most remarkable village in the world: 30 bits of Belgium and the Netherlands, interwoven with each other, together form this two country puzzle. Some kilometres north of the official state border between Belgium and the Netherlands, the Belgian municipality Baarle-Hertog nests itself as 22 loose puzzle pieces in the Dutch municipality Baarle-Nassau. The latter has on its turn 8 such puzzle pieces in Belgium, of which 7 in the Belgian puzzle pieces.
These puzzle pieces are called enclaves. All together, both Baarles are constituted of 30 enclaves: 22 Belgian enclaves, 1 Dutch enclave and 7 Dutch sub-enclaves.

No where else in the world is known of a municipality so extremely interwoven with a municipality of the neighbour country. This tangle is most visible in geographical respect. But in social, cultural, and economic terms, as well as in the public area, there is a great deal of interaction. Examples are - amongst many others - the mixed (Belgian-Dutch) organisations, the joint international library, the joint cultural centre, common public provisions such as drinking water, gas and sewerage, firms with both a Dutch and Belgian address, and so forth. Typical too is that one, so to speak, at a single glance can observe 2 towns hall, 2 fire services, 2 churches, 2 police services, and double provisions for electricity and telephony.

As a result of the remarkable geographical setting, Baarle has the status of tourist village, one of the features of which are the shop opening on Sunday. The village, particularly on Sundays, is frequently showered by day tourists. Consequently, one enjoys an extended and complete offer as regards shops, cafes and restaurants. Beneath its vivid Centre, Baarle also offers a rich nature and agrarian country side. No matter what the tourists are out for, it’s to be found here in Baarle!

you can read all at the understand link its the tourist info off oure history this document its in English


photos' how it was when we just buy this property a large grassland for cheep

now just a few views of the garden still without ant tower but plenty space for that

the space behind this little wooden house (make a pirate's home for my son from this old sheep cage ) grassland with cheep

this pace is about 14 mtr wide ant 150 mtr long this pace is Belgium property the place for the first two aluminium crackup towers antenna garden

this is the end of the garden this pace is the dutch side of my (property) garden 35 mtr wide and 100 mtr long

here we will place on the border the 20 mtr tower with later on a 40 mtr beam and the 4 square ant ( planed little contest station)

rest of this get a garden with fruit trees such as apple, pear, nuts with some place for tent or caravans for people who want to stay

there for couple off days (back of the nature camp place so no power and that kind of thinks)


hope to hear you soon again on the air greetings Karel ON2KP OR PD2BNH Baarle-Hertog/Nassau Dutch/Belgian Enclave´s
