Mechelen - Highlights
Mechelen is an age old, timeless city. This is a Dutch-speaking city and municipality in the province of Antwerp, Flanders, Belgium. The municipality comprises the city of Mechelen, some quarters at its outskirts, the hamlets of Nekkerspoel and Battel as well as the villages of Walem, Heffen, Leest, Hombeek, and Muizen. The Dijle flows through the city, hence the term 'Dijlestad' (City by the Dijle). Mechelen lies on the major urban and industrial axis Brussels-Antwerp, about 25 km from each city. Inhabitants find employment at Mechelen's southern industrial and northern office estates, as well as at offices or industry near the capital, or at industrial plants near Antwerp's seaport. It is one of Flanders' prominent art cities, with Brussels, Antwerp, Bruges, Ghent, and Leuven.

Most cities in Flanders have a mock name for their inhabitants. Since 1687, for their heroic attempt to fight the fire high up in the Saint-Rumbold's Tower, the Mechlinians have been called Maneblussers. Mechelen was at the heart of the revival of the carillon in the early 20th century, and hosts its principal school to this day. It is home to two of the oldest Belgian football clubs. The Kruidtuin or "Botanique" is an inner city park with a marble statue of the world famous 16th century herbalist Rembert Dodoens alias Dodonus. Also, the foresty Vrijbroek recreational park is known for its outstanding Rose and Dahlia Gardens. There is an animal park in Muizen and a Toy Museum at Nekkerspoel. The landmark of Mechelen is the huge St. Rumbold's tower, which can be seen from far away. It is a pleasant Flemish city which belonged to the Duchy of Brabant. The town center is a low-traffic area, which makes Mechelen a pleasant shopping city.
