There should be a disambiguation here betweeb Aalst in Belgium and Aalst in the Netherlands (next to Eindhoven). I post that here since I don't yet know how to do that myself.

I'd like to point out that the building in the picture is not the "town hall" but the belfry (Dutch: belfort) of Aalst. The town hall (Dutch: stadhuis) is situated about 20 m to the right of this building. I had changed this to "belfry" earlier, but someone restored the mistake.isidora
The article currently asserts that Aalst is 19 miles NW of Brussels. But Encyclopedia Britannica claims the true distance is 15 miles/24 kilometers. Who's right? --Gwern (contribs) 17:29 17 December 2006 (GMT)
I came here looking for info on which language is spoken in Aalst. Flemish, Walloon, dutch, french, German? I am going to have to look elsewhere i suppose. This made me wonder why the sidebox doesn't have a 'language' section? 188.8.131.52 (talk) 14:53, 8 February 2010 (UTC)
- Flemish is a regional form of Dutch, and the official language of all Flemish municipalities is Dutch (although a small number also have French as official language). So the official language in Aalst is Dutch, the colloquial, everyday form is Flemish, and then there's also a purely local dialect. Fram (talk) 15:02, 8 February 2010 (UTC)
