A bit smaller, but oh so valiant. Mechelen may not be the largest of cities, but it is well worth a visit. This historic, child-friendly city is a real concentration of heritage buildings. The town is home to the iconic St Rumbold’s Cathedral, Burgundian Hof van Busleyden city palace, cosy streets, quaint churches and beautiful baroque façades which grace the banks of the Dyle. The Kazerne Dossin Holocaust memorial is a more recent addition. It commemorates an important, but dark time in our history.
