Neighbours across borders

Meuse-Rhine is sometimes called "Europe on a small scale": Here you can work in the Netherlands, live in Belgium and go to the doctor in Germany. The advantages of open borders and single currency are obvious in this region.
Here, languages change every ten minutes. This Euroregion sees itself as a natural setting for cross-border contact as well as cultural and economic exchange. Cross-border commuter flows reveal that national employment markets are closely meshed in Meuse-Rhine. Everyday more than 35,000 people cross the border to go to work. The highways and the logistical framework assure optimal mobility.
The perhaps most important aspect of the Meuse-Rhine is the human one: the real-life, real-time experience of living and working together with neighbours across borders.
