"Enjoy the Buildings on Market Square" Mechelen Things to Do Tip by DanielF

Mechelen Things to Do: 194 reviews and 310 photos

It is amazing how this beautiful square has improved since un undergroung car park was built a few years back and the surface became a car-free area.

The Square is presided by the grand building which hosts the City Council and surrounded by beautiful gabled houses which have been carefully renovated. During the mornings, the sun strikes on the opposite side of the City Hall, making of the impressive Saint Rumbold Cathedral looming behind the colourful facades of the guild houses a great backdrop for the open air markets which are still held every Saturday morning.
