Buy some new clothes for your inner fashionista

We probably don’t have to introduce you to Maasmechelen Village! Here, you can find the best fashion items at stylish boutiques at a small price. The car-free, picturesque shopping boulevard is open every day, even on Sundays. At Fashion Point, you can buy nice clothes from the best designers via their cosy shop-in-shop formula. In the covered M2 Shopping Center, on the other hand, you can find the famous chains. In short: Maasmechelen has everything to make your fashion heart pound with anticipation.

Relax in the sauna

Enjoying luxury in the middle of the National Park? It’s possible at Elaisa Energetic Wellness. Each of their ten saunas has its own theme and design. The biggest one offers a spectacular view of a lake. It’s a wonderful experience to see the sun set above the water from the sauna. In the hammam, the different baths and at the sunbathing lawn, relaxation continues. Complete your experience with a massage or facial. You will go home feeling reborn!

Calm down in nature

Maasmechelen is known for its varied nature. You can take beautiful walks at RivierPark Maasvallei or Hoge Kempen National Park. Definitely try strolling through the 100-year-old houses at the Tuinwijk (garden district).

By bike, you zoom right to the charming villages in the neighbourhood. Choose a path through the National Park or along the Meuse river. Thanks to the bicycle route network, you cannot get lost.

Do you want a weekend you will reminisce about for a long time? Try booking a balloon ride and take a look at the Meuse area from the sky.

Dining in style

When you catch up, you obviously prefer to do it with good food and a glass of wine or cava. In Maasmechelen, there are lots of restaurants where you can pamper your taste buds. You can enjoy the traditional Italian cuisine at Da Lidia, Giuliano, La Pizzaiola, Raffaello, Pizza Rico… Do you prefer the French and Belgian cuisine? Try dinner at à Propos in an authentic French bistro interior, or have an amazing glass of wine at Enoteca wine bar Franco Gallo or Barbacoa wine & dine.
