Mechelen

Central Square (Grote markt) - Mechelen ©Visit Mechelen - Aikon
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.

Mechelen, for All Ages

Along with all that history, Mechelen is also tons of fun for children. The Technopolis hands-on technology and science centre, Planckendael Zoo and Toy Museum are a few excellent examples. While they explore, you can enjoy a glass of Gouden Carolus, Mechelen’s acclaimed beer. As we said, something for everyone.
