Good city center lights in evening and Farmers market during the day
Jun. 2019
It is a big city center. When we visited there was a farmers market and was fun to stroll around.

In the night the lighting is awesome. Mostly all the historical place one can see from the city center. One side you can see the tower of St Rumbold's Cathedral.

There are quite few restaurants at the city center.

Nice square
Jan. 2020 • Family
Nice Belgian style square with little bars all around. Nice for a walk or to sit and have a chat on the tables outside. On sundays the huis van mechelar (unsure about spelling) is closed

Magnificent!!
Oct. 2019
One of the prettiest Grote Markts I have seen. The cathedral shadows it from one side and the beautiful gothic building on the other. Loved the little offshoots of little mazey streets all around.

Very atmospheric square in the heart of Mechelen, surrounded by a lot of bars and restaurants. View on the cathedral from here is amazing.

A typical GROTE MARKT in Belgium -
Jul. 2019 • Friends
The GROTE MARKT in Mechelen is a typical Grote Markt square on many cities in Belgium. It is nice wondering around on a nice and sunny day and enjoy a drink on the terasse of one of the many brasseries.

A sight not to miss
Jul. 2019 • Couples
It must be great out of season. Not July and August as fairground in the centre of it followed by a man made beach.
The architecture around the square is amazing.
