A border that is so messed up that it must have been drawn on the map by a drunk guy who just stepped of a rollercoaster. A border that unmistakably leads to war if the two countries sharing it would not be friendly nations that both love frites-mayonnaise. It sounds like a perfect scenario for a slapstick movie, and if it weren’t true it would be ridiculously funny. But the truth is that Belgium and The Netherlands may very well have the world’s most laughable border around the village of Baarle-Nassau (NL) and Baarle-Hertog (BE). Indeed, singular, not plural! Because the borders runs right through this village. And that is not a grammatical error either, because with 30 (!!!) enclaves, including a handful of enclaves in enclaves, there are multiple borders that runs straight through streets and buildings. It has been happily dividing this incredibly weird town for almost two centuries. Let’s go there for an afternoon of anecdotes and to learn about chaotic legal implications.
