  • Quite a long climb but 6 rooms to rest in on the way. A particularly interesting thing was the clock mechanism and bells. Great to be in that room at 1.30 to see the bells ringing. Such a good view at...  read more »

  • 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.
  • Nice tower to visit, it's only a shame that the price for the visit is as steep as the stairs to climb the tower (€8 is a bit expensive in my opinion)
  • 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!
