The Germans wanted a faster approach into Northern France. Belgium had decided to remain neutral during World War I but Germany was very upset at this decision. In order to remain in power, the Rape of Belgium took place allowing Germany to have the agreement of Belgian allies in the war. === === The above answer does not make sense.

Belgium declared neutrality prior to the war but Germany needed to invade to get to France.

Where did the Germans invade to start world war 1?

The question as posed does not really make sense. It was the Russian defense of Serbia against Austria-Hungary's invasion that started World War 1. The German declaration of war against Russia then triggered the alliance of the Triple Entente, expanding the reach of the conflict. Once the Triple Entente was involved, the Germans wanted to invade France. But in order to do so and outflank the French forces on the German/French border, they had to invade the north of France, going first through Belgium. So Belgium was the first country to be invaded.
