Are you a real epicurean? Then embrace your inner Burgundian in Mechelen. The Burgundian era was an exciting time for Mechelen as the Burgundian capital of the Low Countries. Prominent figures such as Margaret of Austria and Emperor Charles V lived here for many years, leaving their mark on the city. Philosophy, culinary and visual arts, music, science, and architecture developed at a rapid pace. You can still feel this wind of change in Mechelen today. Here regional products are produced and sampled with expertise. The city’s artisans and craftsmen perpetuate a centuries-long tradition. And you can immerse yourself in the city’s amazing Burgundian past in the Museum Hof van Busleyden.
