History / Europe Where Europe’s at home

Living cheek-by-jowl as people in Aachen and the entire German/Belgian/Dutch border region do has produced many things in common down the years – things you wouldn’t really find elsewhere. Some even talk in this respect of a historic pan-European DNA shared across national boundaries by the people found in the Meuse/Rhine “Euregio” area.
