Map showing the provinces and the municipalities of Belgium

Belgium is made of 581 municipalities (Dutch: gemeenten, French: communes, German: Gemeinden). These municipalities are grouped into ten provinces (five belonging to the Flemish Region with 300 municipalities, five to the Walloon Region with 262 municipalities), and the Brussels-Capital Region (with 19 municipalities).[1]

Usually, municipalities are the smallest subdivisions of Belgium, but in municipalities with more than 100,000 people living there, they get divided into districts (Dutch: districten).
