Icon description route Description

Today you are cycling through the most remarkable village in the world: 30 pieces of Belgium and the Netherlands form - intertwined - the village of Baarle. These puzzle pieces are called enclaves. What is an enclave? An enclave is a part of a country that is completely surrounded by the territory of another country. At the level of the Baarle puzzle, it proved impossible to define the border.

After Belgian independence, it was not until 1843 that the official national border between Belgium and the Netherlands was established, and it was not until 1974 that this "gap in the border" was closed. Since 1995, the borders of the 30 enclaves have formed the official national border.
