Discussion[edit]

I would not exactly call Zondereigen "the main piece" of Baarle-Hertog. It is a very tiny village, rather a hamlet, whereas the other parts of Baarle-Hertog might each be smaller, but together with Baarle-Nassau form one much bigger populated area, a real village so to speak.

Currency[edit]

Before the euro, what currency was used here? Dutch gulden or Belgian franc? --ChoChoPK (球球PK) (talk | contrib) 07:48, 29 January 2007 (UTC)

Wow[edit]

These are 2 mad little towns. Borders between Italy and Switzerland or Germany and France can be a little haphazard but this is the most unusual I've seen. The question is how long will it last now that intra-EU borders mean so little and the economy of the Netherlands continues to out-perform Belgium and its more liberal and less-restricting laws?--Xania Flag of Italy.svgtalk 14:20, 2 May 2009 (UTC)

I wonder how mail is delivered, utilities charged (Is Netherlands actually exporting water and electricity) 63.79.88.148 (talk) 20:58, 3 June 2009 (UTC)

I think that in the Dutch parts were guldens, and in the Belgian part the Belgian Franc, but in Baarle you could pay with both. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 85.145.118.134 (talk) 09:33, 28 June 2009 (UTC)


But why?![edit]

How did this happen? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.133.13.220 (talk) 16:16, 5 July 2009 (UTC)

What?[edit]

"He mentioned compulsory voting, but maintained he was allowed to build a house 300 metres (328 yards) away from a pig farm, which is illegal in the Netherlands."

So in the Netherlands every house has to be within 300 metres of a pig farm? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 95.148.20.225 (talk) 22:53, 20 August 2011 (UTC)

Details[edit]

{{expand article}} As noted above, folks are curious about (adding a few of my own):

  • Currency (before the Euro)
  • Utilities
  • Mail
  • Openness of the border
  • Immigration and residence
