The former Cloth Hall on the Market Square is a jewel of Flemish mediaeval architecture.
The town hall is especially colourful during the summer months, when it is embellished with heraldic flags and flower baskets.
The Belfry, Unesco World Heritage since 1999, has housed a carillon since 1548, complete according to the Mechelen Standard with 49 bells, of 6800 kgs total weight. Each Sunday and Monday from 11 a.m. till 12 a.m. there is a concert.
You will appreciate the magnificent interior of the Town Hall with its numerous paintings of the "Dendermonde School".
