Tips for staying in Mechelen

If travelling on business, we would strongly recommend adding an extra day or two to your trip. There is ample activities and sights to explore and the town is considered still quite undiscovered by large groups of tourists which allows a slower pace of life to take everything in. We have long and short stay serviced apartments in Mechelen available to accommodate you no matter the length of your trip, so get in touch today to discover your ideal corporate housing.

Transport in Mechelen

With two train stations within walking distance of the city centre, Mechelen Central and Mechelen-Nekkerspoel, you can reach the Grote Markt in less than fifteen minutes from both. If you are travelling to the city by train from practically any Belgian or European city, its central location is a characteristic that many visitors are grateful for, as a journey from Brussels, Leuven and Antwerp only lasts twenty minutes. For bus serviced, De Lijn operates the regional and city buses where short bus rides are in constant supply and great value for money.

Shopping in Mechelen

One of the benefits of shopping in Mechelen is that you are surrounded by beautiful architecture to elevate your experience, rather than noisy cars and congestion. With traditional specialist shops and high street chains all within walking distance from one another, there is something for everyone, all in one place. For an in-store shopping experience, visit Mechelen Zemst Shopping Centre and discover a plethora of shops and eateries.

Things to do in Mechelen

Mechelen is nestled between Antwerp and Brussels, and its convenient location allows easy access to both cities within twenty minutes. This means you can enjoy a day trip to one of these iconic Belgium locations, before returning to the beautiful haven. To catch a glimpse of all three cities from one place, climb up Mechelen’s centerpiece, St. Rumbold’s Tower, and discover the magnificent panoramic views of Belgium. Alternatively, for beautiful sights which you can view with your feet on the ground, St. John’s Church features art from Peter Paul Rubens, whom is considered to be one of the greatest painters of all time. Another option is Zotte Kunstkabinet, home to artistic madness from the likes of Pieter Bruegel and Hieronymus Bosch.
