Het Anker ***
How about spending the night in Mechelen’s city brewery? The old beguinage is situated in the centre of Mechelen and is also home to the city’s fifteenth-century brewery. The perfect base to explore every aspect of Mechelen. If you’re interested in spending the weekend here, book one of the 22 spacious rooms in the brewery hotel. The rooms are well-equipped and the hotel also has its own private car park and meeting facilities. From the breakfast room you can watch the brewery slowly start to wake up. After a day of discovering Mechelen, book a table in the completely refurbished brasserie, where you can also sample the brewery’s beers. As you can see, the brewery has much more to offer than just a good night’s sleep. A visit to Het Anker is all about discoveries and enjoyment, with Mechelen at your feet.
