Zoos · Architectural Buildings · Specialty Museums
Truly a hidden gem, the town of Mechelen features a number of museums, a famous cathedral, and charming squares, all while remaining relatively under the radar. Pedestrian zones lined with cafes provide a scenic backdrop for having a coffee or strolling through town. While it may not be as popular as some other Belgian tourist destinations, Mechelen is a place to escape the crowds during the summer months and experience Flemish history and culture. Visit the foremost cathedral in the country, explore Gothic and Baroque churches, and view architecture dating back to the 1500s. Add Mechelen and other Belgium destinations to your travel plans using our Belgium trip itinerary app.
