Mechelen is a lively sort of place and you sense that immediately! Even the shops have a buzz about them. You can stock up at an outdoor market, or head for Mechelen ‘s main drag de Bruul, which is home to the big brands, and on Sint-Katelijnestraat you’ll find lots of independent retailers and specialist stores. Mechelen has it all!

Tip: If you’re coming by car, park on the Douaneplein and take the free Shopping Shuttle to the centre. Once in the centre, everything is within walking distance!
