About Mechelen

More detailed information can be found HERE but for convenience some info has been summarised here.

If coming by Plane

  • Our suggested airport of arrival would be Brussels Airport. There is a train station located inside the Airport, and Mechelen train station is a major hub that has 2-4 trains from the airport to Mechelen per hour depending on week/weekend/summer scheduling. From the trainstation of Mechelen it is a short walk to the city center or the venue (15-20 minutes), and taxi’s are available up front.
  • If coming via Train

    • If you are arriving via Train but not from the airport, your arrival station still would be “Mechelen”. You can search for tickets from the Belgian Rail Website.

    If coming via Car

    • Mechelen is furthermore easy to reach from neighbouring countries. If you are coming from the Netherlands you will be in Mechelen in no time via Antwerp. Coming from Germany the easiest is to drive via Liege and from France the motorway past Brussels takes you right to Mechelen.
    • Mechelen is located along the E19 motoway in the middle of Flanders, half way between Antwerp and Brussels. This makes Mechelen easy to reach and also the perfect place from which to explore Flanders.
    • On the E19 motorway between Antwerp and Brussels you have a choice of exit 9 (Mechelen-Noord) and exit 10 (Mechelen-Zuid). After that follow the signs to Mechelen Centrum.
