Historic Women’s Walk

This walk looks at the power of women and their influence on the city. It pays tribute to some of Mechelen's foremost women, from the highest ranks to the lowest, from the distant past through to the present day. Among other things, you will visit Margaret of Austria's palace and what are now the law courts, and you will have an outside view of Margaret of York's palace, which now houses the municipal theatre.

The court of first instance is located in the Palace of Margaret of Austria. Due to terror attack alert level 3, the palace’s courtyard garden is currently closed to the public.
