Live Grote Markt Mechelen

The Schepenhuis, known as the Aldermen’s House of Mechelen is a building where the city’s aldermen held their meetings in the Middle Ages. It is located on the edge of the Grote Markt (main square), between the latter and the IJzerenleen and is considered the first stone ‘town hall’ of Flanders. The Grote Markt, the central square in the historic centre, is dominated by St Rumbold’s Tower. You can see it wherever you are. On the other side of the square is the Town Hall. Look at the houses round the Grote Markt. They are from different times and in different styles, including sixteenth-century renaissance and eighteenth-century rococo. Back in 2004, Grote Markt was made a traffic-free zone and an underground car park was built.
