Mechelen, a city of art and business
An artistic city on a par with Antwerp or Bruges, Mechelen has a flamboyant cultural heritage which is testimony to its historical importance.
A rich past which fuels the prospects of a bright future. Mechelen has never ceased to develop its strong potential and exploit the advantages of its size. Thanks to its two conference centres, its direct rail connection to Brussels Airport and its constant urban renewal, this artistic city is poised to become a major business centre in Belgium.
By enhancing one of its cultural jewels at the historic heart of its host city, Martin's Patershof is playing a leading role in its future.
