Bretons from abroad


More than a hundred Belgian students come to Brittany every year. On top of the Erasmus program, there are exchange programs in a number of higher education institutions.

Several Belgian companies have sites in Brittany.

Some Breton cities have twins in Belgium, like Vannes with Mons since 1962, Rennes with Leuven / Louvain, Dinan with Dinant (one wonders why), Erquy with Houpeye.

Fun facts: in 2013, the Belgian surfing championship took place… In Brittany!

There an association of Bretons in Belgium, l’Union des Bretons de Belgique, since 1969!

There is a local group of Bretons From Belgium in Brussels.
