I think we can safely say that it is in Europe and that is not on the British Isles, as they are driving (and parking) on the right side of the road.
My guess would be somewhere in eastern Belgium or nearby Germany.

I found something interesting while looking at Google Maps at this region, at a place called Mützenich you can cross a railway line and go from Germany to Belgium and back to Germany again!
It looks like Mûtzenich is a fully enclosed enclave (?) in Belgium.

You are correct in thinking this is Belgium. but not Mutzenich.
As for the enclave, also check out the Belgian town of "Baarle Nassau" in the Netherlands. (nothing to do with my photo)

I'd love to jump in but, probably like many other people, I haven't got one yet and haven't a clue where any of these places are.

It's an interesting thread to follow though.

You got it, La Roche en Ardenne a major cross roads in the Ardennes.
There is still to this day a Sherman Tank standing watch over the bridge in my photo.

Thanks Stan.
What is the name of this town. Scanned from an Olympus OM1N print.

I did a search for "northern Italy clock tower" but could not find this tower in all the pictures I looked at!
I saw the same kind of crenellations on a tower in Venice, but no match for me.

Well, perhaps that's reassuring, since it's not referred to as a clock tower and it's not in an area I've ever encountered as being described as northern Italy. Hint: look in the windows of @Shaw's photograph and search in the location's language (I got nowhere with English and would be surprised if Swedish worked much better).
