De Klinge

Europe is one of the five inhabited traditional continents of the Earth. Physically and geologically, Europe is the westernmost peninsula of Eurasia, west of Asia. Europe is bounded to the north by the Arctic Ocean, to the west by the Atlantic Ocean, to the south by the Mediterranean Sea, and to the southeast by the waterways adjoining the Mediterranean to and including the Black Sea and the Caucasus Mountains. On the east, Europe is divided from Asia by the water divide of the Ural Mountains and by the Caspian Sea. Europe is the world's second-smallest continent in terms of area and third-largest continent after Asia and Africa in population.

De Klinge, a Belgian town and part of the municipality of Sint-Gillis-Waas in the province of Oost-Vlaanderen East Flanders. It is located on border with the Netherlands province of Zeeland. On the Dutch side of the border the town is called Clinge and is part of the municipality of Hulst. Sint-Niklaas is 10 kilometres south of De Klinge and the nearest large city is Antwerp Antwerpen/Anvers to the east. The town is bordered by many forests which are excellent for cycling.
The dialect of Flemish a variant of Dutch spoken in De Klinge is called Klings, an East Flemish dialect. In the past there were several makers of clogs wooden shoes or klompen as they are called in Flemish. A statue called De Klomp stands in the middle of the round-about on the road from Sint-Gillis-Waas where the Bergstraat, Hogenakkerstraat, and Klingedijkstraat meet.

In every July a kermis festival is held on the main cobblestone street, Klingedorp. The town also has an abbey beer called Klingse Kalsei which is available during this festival and features the Klingedorpstraat on its label. This beer isn't actually brewed in De Klinge but in Ertvelde by Van Steenberge. As it is often regarded as among the most beautiful parts of Europe one of the most visited places amongst the most die-hard travelers the world over.
