  • The Tower of the Cathedral can be seen far outside the city, it could be even higher, but the townspeople run out of funds:) At the entrance to the cathedral stands the layout, what height can be Tower (almost twice that inspires). To the right of the main altar is the work of Van Dyck "crucifixion of Christ", and indeed the magnificent Gothic Cathedral deserves thoughtful examination. In one of the chapels of the buried Knights, defeated in the battle of the Golden Spurs. One of the previous authors of the reviews States that "Before Mechelen pronounced like raspberry, will comment on this nonsense-like all Flemish city of Mechelen has two names-Flemish and French, respectively, French town called Malines/Malin, hence the Crimson chime-Mechelen-capital karil'onnoj music Belgium.

  • A unique experience raise this spectacular belfry. As you're going up, you're seeing areas that make up the campaign system that has the tower. From the top, the views are simply spectacular. Very good attention in Spanish by the person of the tickets. If you go by car, there is parking just below. Thank you

  • Beautifull buiding, but €8 to climb the tower is a bit expensive
  • Beautiful Cathedral. The views from the tower are breathtaking. Listening and watching how the carillon plays is quite an experience.
  • Great cathedral! Worth a visit to the top.
  • Great place to visit, really great view, can be a little unnerving if very windy.
  • I randomly came across the church on a friday afternoon (circa 16:30) and was enchanted by the gratifyingly long carillon (about 15min+) The interior as well as the exterior were besides the size quite ordinary. Two things which greatly bugged me was the perpetual music which played inside the church (some random angelic sort of music) and the utterly high price to visit the tower (7€!!!) If you ever should visit Mechelen, make sure you listen to the carillon and don't foster such unacceptable prices for tower visits!
