    With its beautiful interior and many art treasures, a visit to St Rombouts Cathedral can sometimes be a bit overwhelming. That's why we would like to introduce you to our guide: Lucas Faydherbe!

Together with his contemporaries, he left an indelible mark on the cathedral's appearance.

    This exhibition highlights the border correction signed in this church in October 1769. In his quest for conquest, the French king Louis XIV occupied Flanders, among other places, in the 17th century. The Treaty of Utrecht (1713) annexed the castellania Belle (now Bailleul Fr.) and the castellania Cassel to the French crown. The inhabitants of the present-day Heuvellandse villages of Dranouter, Nieuwkerke and Westouter thus became French subjects in one fell swoop. But in two stages, 1769 and 1780, they...

    Mechelen is a city on a human scale where you can enjoy strolling from one historic church to another on foot. It is also a city with a rich past to which the many top works of art attest. This is certainly true in St John's Church. Not only does it have The Adoration of the Magi by Peter Paul Rubens on display, there are also unique 14th-century murals hidden in the tower.

The children will visit Abraham's tent, Mary's cottage, ... where the relevant Biblical figure tells his story (to be listened to via QR code). There are also two fun activities in each living room (one for 6-9, and one for 9-12).
