Belgium Dialing Codes
Fun Facts: Straddling the cultural boundary between Germanic and Latin Europe, Belgium is home to two main linguistic groups: the Dutch-speaking, mostly Flemish community, which constitutes about 59% of the population, and the French-speaking, mostly Walloon population, which comprises 41% of all Belgians. Additionally, there is a small group of German-speakers who live in the East Cantons located around the High Fens area, and bordering Germany.
Note: Adding the + sign when dialing automatically adds the international Prefix, meaning you don’t need to remember the international prefix: So its +44 for UK or +353 for Ireland from a mobile device rather than the alternative 0044 or 00353 that might be easier to use from a Fixed Line
