Travel Guide Mechelen

Mechelen is centrally located between Brussels and Antwerp. The city attracts attention mainly because of its historic Renaissance architecture, which can be discovered especially in the heart of the city centre, not far from the Grote Markt. In the late Middle Ages, Mechelen was the cultural and economic centre of the region known as the ‘Lordship of Mechelen’. Today, the city in the province of Antwerp is home to about 85,000 inhabitants. Due to its central location between Brussels and Antwerp, the city is also considered an important traffic hub within Belgium. With the Cathedral of St. Romuald, Mechelen can boast an architecturally significant sacral building, which can be assigned to the Gothic style. The foundation stone for the cathedral was laid in the 13th century, and the bell tower, categorized as a belfry, is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site along with the belfries of northern France and Belgium. Not unlike many major Belgian cities, Mechelen has a central square, the Groten Markt, where you can admire the cathedral and the photogenic and historically significant town hall. The Groten Markt is home to a number of restaurants and cafés, making it a great place for travellers to stop for a bite to eat. The city’s beguinages are also a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and their unusual architecture is sure to delight. Mechelen is home to Het Anker, one of the oldest breweries in the country. And if you want to discover Mechelen from a different perspective, you can take a relaxing boat trip along the small canals. Popular for family outings is the region’s resident zoo, Planckendael, which is nationally known for its large outdoor areas with exotic animals such as snow leopards, red pandas and camels.
