Korenmarkt

This triangular square was the site of Mechelen's first market.

Originally it was a general market, but later on it specialized in grain. In those days the square was also known as the Graanmarkt.

Having been given a makeover in 2011, the Korenmarkt is now a delightful place to chill out. In 2013 the square was even nominated for the 'Public Space Prize'.

When the weather is fine you can soak up the relaxed atmosphere of the square at one of the street cafés or from the steps.

The Korenmarkt is home to a magnificent bell-foundry, which is well worth a visit. But the number-one draw has to be the chip stall on the square. And what could be more typical of Belgium than 'frietjes'?
