  • This Gothic Cathedral with its impressive Tower is the great landmark of Mechelen. You may certainly not pass without this church to jump in. Stay here in the beautiful pulpit. Regularly there are also concerts that are worth attending.

  • 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!
