A while ago I took my mom to Mechelen, a city here in Belgium, for a day. As it had been a while since I’d last been there, I do as I often do: I drafted up an itinerary with the most important things to do in Mechelen. Then I thought it would be a shame not to share the list with you guys. I mean, you could easily use it to plan your own day trip to Mechelen, right?
So here goes.
THINGS TO DO IN MECHELEN
1. VISIT THE GRAND PLACE WITH CITY HALL
Mechelen’s city hall consists of the Palace of the Grand Council and a cloth hall with an unfinished belfry. The belfry was never finished because it depended on money coming in through the cloth industry, which started to struggle in the 14th century.
