Our story

A Mechelen city guide and a born “Moon extinguisher”. During eight years, we have welcomed with great pleasure guests from all over the world in our Bed & Breakfast. Tourists and business travelers came and enjoyed all the beauty that Mechelen has to offer. Today, it is time for us to start a new chapter. The B & B closed its doors at the end of 2013 and now we start with "Buitengewoon Mechelen” (Extraordinary Mechelen).


Discoveries of extraordinary places in the city centre and experiences for groups of 1 up to 15 people during the weekend.

Look at the city in a different way.


Start- and/or endpoint is our home from the beginning of the 20th century, in the shadow of Rumbold's tower.
