Spend a day in the charming town of Mechelen, breathing in the air of centuries of history


Once upon a time Mechelen was the centre of the Low Countries. Nowadays it is a charming little town, halfway between Antwerp and Brussels, off the beaten tracks of traditional tourists. Nevertheless, the city has succeded in keeping the grandeur it had during the reign of the Dukes of Burgundy in the 15th century, more than alive, not in the least with the recently renovated museum of 'Hof van Busleyden'.
And of course, a visit to Mechelen is not complete without tasting the typical beers of the brewery 'Het Anker'.

Itinerary

- We start off in Antwerp (or wherever you may be staying in Flanders) to travel to Mechelen.
- We start our trip with a nice cup of coffee or tea.
- Then we head off for a short walk through the town of Mechelen, paying a visit to the Cathedral, passing Market Place, City Hall and so on.
- Time for lunch.
- Guided tour in the museum Hof van Busleyden, a recently renovated 16th century city palace.
- A drink in a local bar.
- Back to where we started.
