We live in a childfriendly house in a dead and quiet street in Mechelen. Our house has 2 children bedrooms, one big parents bedroom and one badroom. Also our garden is childfriendly: we've got a slide, a swing and a sandbox.
We are very proud of our city Mechelen: https://toerisme.mechelen.be/en. Mechelen is a small and picturesque city that is big on charm and history, thriving with quaint shops, car-free areas and pleasant little squares. The grace of centuries-old palaces and majestic churches appeals to everyone. There are no less then 336 listed buildings and monuments, including eight gothic and baroque churches from the 14th-17th century. The Begijnhofkerk is especially unique, with its feminine art schemes and pastel colours.
Mechelen is a city for all ages. Young people can actively enjoy themselves in the Toy Museum or the Tivoli Children's Farm, whereas the young at heart can entertain themselves at the Anker, one of the oldest operating breweries in Belgium. Students from all over the world come to learn to play church bells at Mechelen’s carillon school. Sitting outside on the terrace of a cafe sipping a local beer while listening to the bell music coming from the sky is nothing short of delightful. It is also home to one of the last remaining places in the world that restores and repairs antique tapestries, at Royal Manufacturers
Mechelen is a city and municipality in the province of Antwerp, Flanders, Belgium. The municipality comprises the city of Mechelen proper and some quarters at its outskirts. The Dyle flows through the city, hence it is often referred to as the Dijlestad ("City on the river Dijle").
Mechelen lies on the major urban and industrial axis Brussels–Antwerp, about 25 km from each city (15 minutes driving).
And only 11 minutes from the national airport and one hour driving to the sea.
Mechelen is a familyfriendly city: a lot of parks with playground and a lot of activities organised in the summer.
