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.
