Botanical Gardens

The best place to unwind in Mechelen is probably the Botanical Gardens.

This stunning park is located along the River Dijle, between Bruul and Zandpoortvest. There are about 250 different types of herbs planted around the statue of Rembert Dodoens, which have been grouped by species, variety and colour.

The playground of the Botanical Gardens is a real hit with children.
