Welcome to your (new) home with its five regions, three countries, and more than four million people. Find all information, events, and services to make this Euregio youRegion.

The website is accessible in English, German, Dutch and French. Summaries on living and working across borders, and the most important links for the Euregio Meuse-Rhine are available in: Arabic, Chinese, Hindi, Italian, Polish, Russian, Spanish, and Turkish.

Multilingual

The Euregio is a mozaique of cultures and languages. You can explore the Euregio Meuse-Rhine in English, German, French, and Dutch, including all topics and links. Summaries of the content are available in eight more languages.

This Euregio is where Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands meet. They share borders, but also a common daily life and labour market with more than 26,000 cross-border commuters.

Natives can turn into international “newcomers” within walking distance. This mosaic of cultures and the diversity of the “near abroad” is core to regional identity in between Aachen, Maastricht, Liège, Eupen and Hasselt.

In your new or your native language, you are welcome to cross the border for whatever your reason may be – and add your own piece to our rich design.

Euregio Meuse-Rhine

Residents of the Euregio Meuse-Rhine live the “European idea” as they benefit from all the advantages of living and working in different countries.

Starting as a working group in 1976, the organisation of the Euregio Meuse-Rhine is now classified as a legal entity: an “EGTC” (European Grouping of Territorial Cooperation). Within this area, we show what is common across the borders.

Corona is putting a great challenge to living without borders. Find support in the youregion-community with information and services.
