Strategic location

Belgium is strategically located in the heart of Europe. Nestled between Germany, the Netherlands, France and Luxembourg, and only a stone’s throw from the UK, it lies at the centre of the richest and most densely populated area in Europe.

Thanks to its position, Belgium enjoys excellent access to Europe’s key markets and suppliers.

A number of European business centres are located within a 300 km radius. The following cities, for example, are only a short train journey from Brussels:

  • Brussels – Paris: 1 hour 22 minutes
  • Brussels – Amsterdam: 1 hours 53 minutes
  • Brussels – Frankfurt: 3 hours 22 minutes
  • Brussels – London: 1 hours 51 minutes

Another hour’s travel will bring you to such business centres as:

  • Rome
  • Madrid
  • Stockholm
  • Athens
  • Berlin
  • Dublin
  • Etc.

Precisely because of its strategic location, Belgium is an international hub for economic and political institutions. The headquarters of the European Union and NATO are located in the country, which is also home to many European politicians, international lobbyists and European headquarters.
