About Eupen


In 1919, after the First World War and at the Treaty of Versailles, Eupen was definitely transferred with Malmedy from Germany to Belgium.
German remains the official language in Eupen and the city serves as the capital for Belgium’s German-speaking Community. The city has a small university, the Autonome Hochschule in der deutschsprachigen Gemeinschaft, offering bachelor’s degrees in education and nursing.
Eupen is considered in Belgium to be a Roman Catholic region with strongly conservative views.
