Like the Netherlands and Germany, Belgium has northern plains which have no caves. The flat geography makes the formation of karst areas and caves impossible, even if the rocks are limestone. The ground water table is very close to the surface and there is no karstification.
The southern part of the country is called the Ardennes. This hill country has areas of Devonian and Carbon limestones with caves and other karst features.
