Christmas Markets

Christmas Market on the Dyle

If you are looking for a cheerful Christmas Market with an historical flavour, you have to be in Mechelen. We are transforming the Vismarkt, the Haverwerf and the surrounding area into a Christmas Market on the Dyle. You will revel in a cosy, warm Christmas atmosphere amidst the enchanting Christmas booths. Taste our artisanal treats or typical winter beverages, and surprise your sweetheart (or loved ones) with delectable local products or the perfect Christmas gift.

During these two weekends, you can enjoy alternating between the Christmas Market and skating on the Dyle – all in one location. If you like, you can even combine all of this with Christmas shopping in the inner city.

    • 15, 16 & 17 December
