I have an off topic question for you.
I often see that titles of threads about Belgium and it's cities (for example photo threads in Urban Showcase) are often named in Dutch and French (sometimes, like you did in your post, in English as well) to show that Belgium is multilingual. But why is German always left out? Isn't it an official language of Belgium as well?

back to topic:
The stations of Leipzig and Milano are very impressive old stations too. They should be mentioned.

So why is it written? MDCCCLXXXIV? It's not 1885.

I really like the design of Helsingfors Central.

Stockholms look a bit boring in comparison:

Cluj-Napoca Train Station (Romania)

Cluj-Napoca's train station was opened on 7 september 1870. It was build by the english company Warring according to Karl von Gega's project. It was half destroyed in the WWII and renovated in the '50's.

German is indeed an official language but is only spoken by 75.000 people or so.
French is spoken by 4 million people and Dutch by 6 million people.

And as you might know Belgium has had issues and problems between the Walloons and the Flemish (French speaking and Dutch speaking communities) from the beginning. The little German speaking part was given to Belgium after WW I.
The last five years we're tumbling from the one political crisis into the other and nearly everything get's dominated by the problems and diverences between the Walloons and the Flemish. Even when they had to choose the colours for the new European license plates there was a lot of commotion.
Another thing is that the area where they speak German is a bit further away, 'hidden' in the forest and hills between germany, luxembourg, the netherlands and wallonia.

So I just think that with all this a lot of Belgians simply 'forget' a bit about the Germans in our country.

They sometimes say that the German speakers are the only 'true' Belgians. And I think there's a glimpse of truth in it.

Hmmm... there was already a german speaking part inside Belgium before 1914, in the jargon of political science the "Old Belgium" (Montzen, Welkenrath, Buchholz, Arel...), today mostly frenchified, in contrast to the "New Belgium" (Eupen/Malmüd/St. Vith...) where german is still spoken (in Malmüd/Weismes less so these days...).

You are right, one tends to forget that. I assume that the majority of the german speaking Belgians will either speak French fluently and if not, they could easily read Dutch or English.

Thanks guys for clarifying that, especially eland! For such a small country, Belgium is pretty complicated...

Although it's not an offical language we even have a few thousand native speakers of Lëtzebuergesch.

Some other Belgian stations

Gent-Sint-Pieters



Schaarbeek / Schaerbeek



Ronse / Renaix



This one is the oldest remaining station on the European mainland (1844). Originally it stood in Bruges but it was "moved" to Ronse in 1879.
