Ons Erfdeel

Ons Erfdeel is a quarterly Flemish-Dutch magazine that has been reporting about everything related to language, the arts, literature, history and society in the Low Countries ever since 1957. Ons Erfdeel takes its time – and the necessary space – in order to delve deep into subjects, always mindful of nuance and with plenty of attention to detail.

Level-headed and thorough, well-informed and well-written: those are the qualities we look for in each one of our articles. In doing so, we can offer the Ons Erfdeel readership something they cannot find elsewhere. Why? Because we believe in excellent content, and take our readers seriously.



Septentrion is a quarterly magazine that has been targeting French-speakers since 1972 and – of course, in French – provides a window into the arts, literature and culture in Flanders and the Netherlands. Septentrion pays particular attention to the mutual cultural influence between the French-speaking and Dutch-speaking regions. The magazine is a successful way for Dutch-speakers to reach out to French-speakers.

The journal is one of a kind and is available throughout the French-speaking world. It is an excellent way to break down linguistic barriers and to improve the relationship between French-speakers and Dutch-speakers.
