The German-speaking Community is one of the three communities in Belgium and comprises nine municipalities: Amel, Büllingen, Burg-Reuland, Bütgenbach, Eupen, Kelmis, Lontzen, Raeren and Sankt Vith. The area stretches from the 3-country point at Vaals in the north to the 3-country point near Ouren in the south, located near the border with Germany.

This area is unfortunately only very limited described on Wikipedia. That is why Wikimedia Belgium organises a double writing week on this area from 10 to 21 December 2018. Everyone can participate by writing about topics related to this region.



Add your name here if you participate in the writing weeks.

  1. Romaine - writing about monuments, nature and more
