The Predikheren is Mechelen’s new and dynamic temple of culture, a source of encounters, collaboration, art, culture and literature. The building’s long and fascinating history combined with its respectful restoration, which has left as many readable layers of its past as possible, make the former Dominican monastery one of the most magical libraries in Flanders. In “the largest living room in the city” everyone can become part of the story.
According to the International Federation of Library Associations, The Predikheren is one of the top five most beautiful libraries in the world.
