"Water and Mechelen" Mechelen Favorite Tip by tompt
Mechelen General: 32 reviews and 56 photos
Favorite thing: Mechelen is located along the river Dijle. In the old days there were lots of small waters inside the city, all branches of the Dijle. But when the river flooded the entire city was under water. First they filled up or vaulted the little waters. But that was not enough, and a branches was dugged around the city to divert the water from the centre around the city.
