Belgium is located in Western Europe between the North Sea, France and the Netherlands. Belgium covers an area of 33 990 square kilometers and is divided into three geographic regions coastal plain in the northwest, the central plateau and the Ardennes in the southeast.

The coastal plain consists mainly of sand dunes and polders. Dike landscape is land near or below sea level, where the sea is kept out by means of dikes, or delete which is drained by means of channels. The central plateau is a flat area that rises slowly inland and has many fertile valleys and is irrigated by many waterways. It's also more rugged areas, including caves and small gorges.

In the southeast is the Ardennes, is more rugged than the rest of the country. It is a dense and hilly wooded area, which is not as suitable for agriculture. The area extends into the northern parts of France and into Germany, where the area called Eifel. This is where you find most of the wildlife in Belgium. The highest point in Belgium, Signal de Botrange of 694 meters, is also located in this area. Belgium has relatively few natural lakes, and none of them are large.

Belgium shares borders with France (620 km), Germany (167 km), Luxembourg (148 km) and the Netherlands (450 km). The total land border is 1482 km, in addition to the 73.1 km of coastline. Belgium is virtually the geographic center of Western Europe and all the major capitals of Western Europe within 1000 km from Brussels, which is the seat of both the European Union and NATO. From southeast to northwest, the country is 280 km long, and from east to west 222 km.
