Climbing St. Rumbold's Tower with a guide

The symbol of Mechelen has to be its imposing St. Rumbold’s Tower. Climb up for a view of the rooftops of Mechelen and catch your breath en route in one of the six tower rooms, where a guide will tell you more about the tower’s history. The route to the summit is impressive: because where in the world can you see two carillons in one tower? Once there, you can enjoy a jaw-dropping view from the skywalk. On a clear day, you can even see the Atomium in Brussels and Antwerp’s port. Duration: 2 hours.
