There is a cafe that sits right on the borderline between Belgium and Netherlands

There are 22 Belgian exclaves in the Netherlands and 6 Dutch exclaves located within the largest Belgian exclave. Such land distribution results in complexity of borders between the two countries.

It is not unusual that one part of the building is located in Belgium and the other in Netherlands. This cafe, for example, is located right on the borderline between Belgium and Netherlands. This border runs across the town of Baarle-Nassau.

There must be quite a few entrepreneurs in this town using its location and difference in laws to their own benefit.
