Het Anker: Sweet dreams at the brewery

The 15th-century town’s brewery in Mechelen is a unique place to stay. Situated in the middle of the Beguinage, 10 minutes' walk from the Grote Markt, and 5 minutes drive from Mechelen-Nekkerspoel station. While you enjoy breakfast, you can watch the brewery come to life. After a day exploring Mechelen, come back and dine in the fully renovated brasserie, not forgetting of course to savour the renowned Gouden Carolus beer.
