Cultural and language differences

If you want to focus on the Belgian market, it is important that you distinguish Flanders and Wallonia. There are major cultural and language differences between these regions. The regions even have two different kinds of newspapers and a separate music industry. It is therefore important that you do not copy your marketing campaigns one-to-one for all regions.


Flanders is a federal state of Belgium. Flanders is also known as the Flemish Region. Flanders consists of several provinces: West Flanders, East Flanders, Antwerp, Flemish Brabant and Limburg. Also the Brussels-Capital Region, which shares Flanders with the French speakers. The official language spoken here is Dutch. Nevertheless, the language situation in Flanders is quite complicated. The bilingual area of ​​Brussels is also part of Flanders. The official languages ​​of Brussels are Dutch and French.

In addition, there are special language regulations in twelve municipalities in Flanders. For example, the street names are bilingual. A distinction must also be made between six language border municipalities (Bever, Herstappe, Messines, Ronse, Spiere-Helkijn and Voeren) and six peripheral municipalities (Drogenbos, Linkebeek, Wemmel, Sint-Genesius-Rode, Kraainem and Wezembeek-Oppem).


Wallonia is the southern part of Belgium. Mainly French is spoken here. In addition, German is also spoken and Dutch is still spoken by a minority in the peripheral areas. Wallonia also has two important regional languages. These are Walloon and Picardy. However, in the course of the twentieth century this has been strongly pushed back by French.


Due to the two regions it is difficult to describe a general culture for Belgium. These regions have major cultural and language differences. Nevertheless, there are a number of cultural characteristics that apply to both regions.

Belgium pride

Belgians are extremely proud of their cultural heritage. Belgium, for example, is really a beer country. They are therefore very proud of the rich collection of traditional beers. They are also known worldwide for their Flemish fries. For both the beers and the fries, they go back to old traditions that sometimes have a history as far back as the early Middle Ages. In addition to the beers and fries, the cities also have a long and rich history. In addition, the Belgians are also known for their Burgundian lifestyle and their sense of humour.


The Belgians are also known for their love of partying. Carnival is celebrated exuberantly throughout the country. This folk festival sometimes has a tradition of more than 100 years.


Belgium also has a vibrant sports culture. This is shown, for example, in the national pride for De Rode Duivels, the national football team. But Belgium also has a number of great athletes in the field of tennis and cycling. In addition, many water sports are also practiced.

Kinds of Telephone Numbers in Belgium


Belgium has a number of different numbers. Just like the Netherlands, Belgium uses free service numbers that start with an 0800 area code. These kinds of songs are therefore very well known and loved by the Belgian population. Message To The Moon offers several songs. You can choose which number is best for your company. If you have a number from Belgium and a website, you do not need to be physically present in the country to integrate into the market. You also save costs, such as investments in business premises, resources such as equipment, registrations, etc. The Belgian telephone numbers of Message To The Moon forward to any desired number, anywhere in the world. So you can simply be in the Netherlands and pick up the phone there when a customer calls your Belgian number. Do you want to generate more turnover through the number? Or do you want to show that you are there for the customer with a freephone number? This choice is completely up to you and our specialists are especially ready to help you with this choice.


Belgium therefore uses freephone numbers. The number that starts with the area code 0800 is a freephone number. This means that the costs are entirely for the recipient. The caller therefore does not have to pay anything. This toll-free 800 phone number is not tied to any particular city or region. Because it’s free for the caller, customers like to pick up the phone to call you. A Freephone number is great for organizations where something is sold based on the call. Think, for example, of requests for quotations, donations or reservations. The games of chance, dialer and entertainment services are prohibited in Belgium. and these services can therefore not use a freephone number.

Premium rate

In addition, numbers are also used in Belgium to which rates are linked. The caller must pay for the telephone call. This choice is suitable if you want to earn money from phone calls. Service numbers starting with the area code 0905 charge a rate per call, also known as PPC (Pay-per-Call). In addition, rates per minute are charged for numbers starting with prefixes such as 0900, 0902, 0903 and 0904, which is also referred to as Pay-per-Minute (PPM). The rate for a PPM number is capped at and may not cost more than £3.60 per minute. The cost of a call to a PPC number must not exceed £6.

Premium Rate numbers are usually used for calls that do not lead to sales. For example, you can think of support services or information numbers. The Premium Rate number gives you a professional look. Above all, this number shows that you are not tied to a region, but operate on a national level.

Local number

With a geographic number you tie your brand to a specific city or region. For example, it is possible to use a telephone number in the area code area of, for example, Antwerp, Aalst or Brussels. This ensures that the local population has more confidence and thus clearly shows which market you want to reach. This option is intended for companies that want to indicate that they will be physically present in the country. But it is also very useful for shops that have several visiting addresses.-

National number

Using a national number gives your company more options on a national scale. The national number for Belgium starts with the area code 78. It doesn’t matter what your primary location is, because the national numbers ensure that you have a national identity. Your customers will easily find out where you are located by looking at your contact number. This ensures a better reputation and more reliability for your company. As an added benefit, multiple locations can be accessed through one number. This is ideal if you have multiple locations.
