  Mechelen's Main Square and Cathedral
by Paul2001

Mechelen is a great town to visit. It easily reachable from both Antwerp and Brussels as it is about just a half hour from both cities. I visited it on a daytrip from Antwerp. It does not receive the hordes of tourist that other Belgium cites receive in the vicinity. This is probably because there are really no big ticket attractions in town. Still there Mechelen is home to a one of the finest cathedrals in Belgium, several smaller and nice churches, a stunning Hotel de Ville and a very beautiful market square, pictured here.
