Belgium is a trilingual country, the two main languages being Flemish (a dialect of Dutch) and French with a German-speaking minority. Flanders is the Flemish-speaking region and Walloon, the French-speaking. Though Brussels is surrounded by Flanders, it’s primarily French-speaking. You’ll notice while riding the train that Belgians have a French and Dutch name for each city.
