Burgundian city walk for individuals

You can join the group again starting 1 July 2020, during this 1-hour Burgundian tour. The guide will use a voice amplifier. What we expect from you?

  • it is mandatory to wear a mouth mask in the city center.
  • Always keep 1.5m distance for participants.
  • Always disinfect your hands before departure.

You don’t know Mechelen (that well)? Then sign up for this one-hour walk in the company of a city guide.   

On this Burgundian city walk you will discover places and hear stories about the period in the fifteenth century when the city came under the rule of the Dukes of Burgundy. Vibrant Mechelen still owes much of its colour to that period.

The route leads past imposing city mansions, historical churches and picturesque cityscapes. You’ll have the chance to step inside the breathtaking St Rumbold’s Cathedral and admire the historical wall paintings in the Schepenhuis, Flanders’ oldest surviving town hall.  

Please note: the murals in the Schepenhuis are temporarily unavailable for safety measures during the tour.

The guide’s treasure-trove of stories brings to life figures like Margareta of Austria and Charles V and shows that it is still possible to walk in their world.
