Mechelen, accessible for everyone

Welcome to the walkable city of Mechelen, to its historic monuments, charming waterside locations and hidden gems! And all within reach of pedestrians and wheelchair-users. This walk puts the spotlight on a golden age in Mechelen’s fascinating history: the Burgundian period. The time of Margaret of Austria and Margaret of York. The walk follows in the footsteps of these two strong and intriguing women, who left their imprint on this city-on-the-Dyle. 

Older tourists, visitors with a disability or reduced mobility or with special care requirements need not be apprehensive about visiting Mechelen.


We have put together a walk that is approximately 2.3 km long and takes you from the starting point at the Schepenhuis to the main places of interest. Along the way you will be given the option of extending the walk. 

Brochure available at Visit Mechelen in Dutch and English.
