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)

I guess, according to the law, a company must declare their economy in the currency according to the country they are registred in. Their employees are also officially employed in that country but can cross the border in their work. So according to the law, belgian areas had franc, and dutch areas had gulden. But shops accepted both with a fair exchange rate. That is my educated guess. --BIL (talk) 08:01, 30 May 2008 (UTC)

Border control[edit]

Were there border controls along the complicated borders, before 1948 when the border control between Netherlands and Belgium were lifted? My guess is no, like for Büsingen am Hochrhein. Someone who knows? --BIL (talk) 08:42, 7 April 2009 (UTC)

Needs map[edit]

This article needs a map to show where the Belgian exclaves and the Dutch exclaves within those Belgian exclaves are. howcheng {chat} 23:07, 7 February 2007 (UTC)

Map scale?[edit]

Could a scale be added to the map? How big are these chunks of land? --Billpg (talk) 15:57, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

Same map?[edit]

This article has the same map as Baarle-Hertog, so what's the difference between the two? S!lver NL (talk) 14:08, 15 March 2010 (UTC)

As the legend shows, the strong yellow is Belgium (BH) and the rest is Netherlands (BN). —Tamfang (talk) 17:47, 18 March 2010 (UTC)

land uses[edit]

Generally speaking, predominantly agricultural or built environments became constituents of Brabant, other parts devolved to Breda.

What's neither agricultural nor built? Pasture? Woods? —Tamfang (talk) 19:29, 21 December 2010 (UTC)

How...?[edit]

It would nice to include some history to explain how and when this bizarre situation arose... 129.173.55.207 (talk) 17:32, 24 April 2013 (UTC)
