Full Day Antwerp & Mechelen

The combination of these two cities shows the true spirith of the Flamish people. Very commited to work and creative. Both cities have a lot to offer in terms of painting, architecture, diamonds and history. <br><br>The park of Antwerp, is probably the only park in the world, where both Muslims and Jew are playing together: a gift of tolerance and mutual respect.

It is a big city center. When we visited there was a farmers market and was fun to stroll around. In the night the lighting is awesome. Mostly all the historical place one can see from the city center. One side you can see the tower of St Rumbold's Cathedral. There are quite few restaurants at the city center.

Nice Belgian style square with little bars all around. Nice for a walk or to sit and have a chat on the tables outside. On sundays the huis van mechelar (unsure about spelling) is closed

One of the prettiest Grote Markts I have seen. The cathedral shadows it from one side and the beautiful gothic building on the other. Loved the little offshoots of little mazey streets all around.

Try to imagine how Mechelen must have been centuries ago. All these beautiful buildings help you in this.
