Travel Tips for Mechelen

St. Rumbold's tower

by Helga67

The St. Rumbold's tower (St. Romboutstoren) is the landmark of Mechelen. You can see this huge tower from far away.

The tower has a height of 97 m and you can reach the top after climbing over 500 steps. The tower was supposed to be 160 m high but was never finished as Mechelen had financial problems in the 16th century.

Choral school

by Helga67

There is a link between Mechelen and Beethoven.

The 'Koraalschool' (choral school) was a school for the education of the choral singers of the St. Rumbold's Cathedral. One of the students was Louis van Beethoven, the grandfather of the famous composer.

Town hall - Columned Reception Room

This was a very beautiful room with a high ceiling and several columns. It had huge stain-glass windows with coats of arms of all the district that belonged to emperor Charles the 5th.
