Don't come on a Sunday
Don't come on a Sunday, when the numerous BMW's and Mercedeses in the streets indicate that people from bad neighbourhoods in the area (read: Tilburg) come to do their shopping*. Yes, Baarle is a real bad taste-paradise with numerous shops selling cheap cigarettes, fireworks, kitsch, sex toys and ugly clothes. It's fun to watch the people and enjoy seeing how a twenty-year old girl can look like forty, thanks to the miracles of nicotine, or how a forty-year old woman tries to look like twenty thanks to the miracles of hair paint, mini-skirts and high leather boots, but these people aren't very nice company. Trying to cross the street , even at places where you're supposed to be able to cross safely, is playing with your life. These people won't slow down but are more likely to speed up when they see you cross. Their idea of a good joke. In Summer the village gets crowded with people from nearby campings.
* Owning a BMW or a Mercedes may be a token of good taste in your country but in The Netherlands it ain't.
And those massive tourists, after finishing with photos taking and shopping, then they go on and drinking, as much as they can and fast as they can.
- Beer Tasting
Large amounts of tourists
I cannot think about any danger here, well, maybe beside the popularity of this place for shopping and the large amounts of tourists here, and they just take photos of everything
