Central Europe is nowadays used for countries between Western Europe and the former Soviet Union (which is considered as Eastern Europe). Countries like Poland, Czechia, Slovakia and Hungary, and sometimes also Austria and Slovenia, are seen as Central European. France is definitely not Central European. Western Europe, yes. But you can count Ireland, Netherlands and Portugal all as Western European. Geographically that is correct, but the question seems to be more aimed at the cultural division within Europe.
@Barry88 All you said is correct but you asked me and I dont put too much emphasis on culture. For me Germany is the center of Europe for many reasons and since France is just a hop across the border its not much of a stretch.
Fair point, I would see it like that as well if I consider just the territory west of the former Soviet Union. In that case Germany and France are the two main, centrally located countries. The most important countries of the EU as well.
Are you still baking eclairs french man?
