Belgium Overview

Belgium, kingdom in Western Europe, a federal state since 1993, which consists of the regions Flanders (Dutch language area), Wallonia (French and German language area) and Brussels (bilingual French and Dutch), divided into ten provinces and the capital region. Belgium is one of the most densely populated countries in Europe (376 residents per km 2). The country is divided into Lower Belgium (the Flemish coast with the former world port of Bruges; in the northeast part of the Kempenland), in the Central Belgian plateau and hill country (drained by the Scheldt and its also navigable tributaries, with many canals) and in High Belgium with the Ardennes and the High Fens. In the economy, industry (particularly coal mining and highly developed heavy industry) takes precedence over agriculture and livestock.

History: The name Belgium goes back to the name of the Roman province Gallia Belgica, which was used by the Celtic, z. T. also Germanic Belgen was inhabited. In the 5th century part of the Frankish Empire, in the 14th century the area came to the Duchy of Burgundy and with this in 1477 to the Habsburgs; from 1556 the southern Netherlands, today’s Belgium, were under the Spanish crown. In 1815 the Catholic southern and Protestant northern Netherlands were combined to form the Kingdom of the United Netherlands. After an uprising by the southern Dutch, the Kingdom of Belgium was established in 1830.

Since 1840 there have been disputes between the French-speaking Walloons and the Flemings, who are part of the Dutch cultural area, over the language issue. In the 19th century, Belgium became an important industrial country due to its rich deposits of hard coal. In both world wars the country was occupied by German troops. Belgium has been in a customs union since 1948 and an economic union with the Netherlands and Luxembourg since 1960 (Benelux). King was Albert II (* 1934) from 1993 to 2013. He abdicated in 2013 in favor of his son Philippe (* 1960).

Vegetation

While one can still assume pure deciduous forests in the entire area of ​​Belgium for the Middle Ages, today conifers predominate in several regions. The spruce, which is often found in the Ardennes, was introduced by forestry, as was the pine in the Kempen, which was planted in formerly extensive heathland areas. The preserved old beech forests of the Forêt de Soignes southeast of Brussels have been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2017. In the High Fens, raised bogs occur on impermeable clay soils. This highest part of the Ardennes is part of the German-Belgian Nature Park.
