Summer Family Adventures

Come to Mechelen this summer and be sure to bring your children or grandchildren with you because there is so much to see and do for the whole family in and around the city. Mechelen really is geared to families. For example, the children can run free in several dedicated play areas in the traffic-free zones. There’s the Museum Hof van Busleyden, which has an excellent family trail, and just a stone’s throw from the centre you’ll find the Toy Museum, Technopolis and ZOO Planckendael. Not forgetting the child-friendly festivals where young and old – including the dads - can show off their dance moves!

Too much for one day? We think so too! Mechelen has several family-friendly hotels where you and the kids can stay. And: for each room you book directly with the hotel you will receive two tickets to climb St Rumbold’s Tower free of charge. Discover the full range of hotels below.
