On 1 January 2006 Baarle-Hertog had a population of 2,306. The total area is {{convert|7.48|km²|2|abbr=off}} which gives a population density of 308 inhabitants per km² (798 inhabitants/sq mi).


Border with Baarle-Nassau

(File:Baarle-Nassau - Baarle-Hertog-en.svg|thumb|Map showing the enclaves of Baarle-Hertog)Baarle-Hertog is noted for its complicated borders with Baarle-Nassau, Netherlands.{{es icon}} Map, pictures and infos on "Fronterasblog" The complex border was created after the Treaty of Maastricht was signed between the Netherlands and Belgium in 1843. In total it consists of 24 separate parcels of land, none of which is actually contiguous with the bulk of the territory of Belgium (to which it belongs). The main division of Baarle-Hertog is Zondereigen (named after its main hamlet), located north of the Belgian town of Merksplas. In addition there are twenty Belgian exclaves in the Netherlands and three other sections on the Dutch-Belgian border. There are also seven Dutch exclaves within the Belgian exclaves (i.e., counter-exclaves). Six of these Dutch enclaves are located within the largest Belgian enclave, and a seventh in the second-largest Belgian enclave. An eighth Dutch exclave is located nearby Ginhoven.During the First World War, this situation meant that the German Imperial Army could not occupy these parts of Belgium without crossing the Netherlands, which the Dutch government did not allow. Thus, these pieces of Belgium became a place where refugees could safely stay.An Apology of Enclaves A clandestine radio transmitter was smuggled in and from there worked with the Belgian resistance. The Dutch government fenced off these areas and controlled access in or out of them, building a church and school for the Belgian people who were effectively stranded within the enclaves.(:nl:Enclavegeschiedenis van Baarle#Baarle en de Eerste Wereldoorlog|Enclavegeschiedenis van Baarle (Dutch)){{Circular reference|date=March 2019}} This situation did not exist in the Second World War, as both countries were occupied by Nazi Germany.Some houses in the town of Baarle-Hertog/Baarle-Nassau are divided between the two countries. At one time, according to Dutch laws restaurants had to close earlier. For some restaurants on the border, this simply meant that the customers had to move to a table on the Belgian side.WEB,weblink The Curious Case of Baarle-Nassau and Baarle-Hertog,, 2012-11-06, 2014-08-01, The border's complexity results from a number of equally complex medieval treaties, agreements, land-swaps and sales between the Lords of Breda and the Dukes of Brabant. Generally speaking, predominantly agricultural or built environments became constituents of Brabant and other parts devolved to Breda. These distributions were ratified and clarified as a part of the border settlements agreed under the Treaty of Maastricht in 1843. The tight integration of the European Union and in particular the Schengen Treaty have made many of the practicalities of the situation substantially simpler since the 1990s.Many fireworks shops are found in Baarle-Hertog, owing to Belgian laws controlling the sale of fireworks that are more lenient than those in the Netherlands. Close to the end of the year many Dutch tourists come to Baarle-Hertog to buy fireworks to celebrate the New Year.Two villages in the municipality, Zondereigen and Ginhoven, are located in the main territory of Belgium.File:Baarle-Nassau frontière café.jpg|Cafe in Baarle-Nassau, showing border between Belgium and the NetherlandsFile:P1020708Sint-Remigiuskerk.JPG|Church of Saint Remigius
