The Vennbahn is a former railway line that was built partly across what was then German territory by the Prussian state railways, but is now entirely in Belgium, because the trackbed of the line, as well as the stations and other installations, were made provisional Belgian territory in 1919 (permanent in 1922) under an article of the Treaty of Versailles. This had the effect of creating about five small exclaves of Germany on the line’s western side (the exact number varies according to source).
