Mechelen and Brewery Het Anker - e-bike trip

Did you know that Leuven is not Belgium’s only Dijlestad (city on the Dijle)? Just 25 kilometers upriver lies Mechelen, an important medieval city that also possesses a renowned-reputation as a regional beer capital. Travel with us to Mechelen to try the beer that history-altering Emperor Charles V considered the best beer in the world!

We will start our journey with a leisurely and scenic e-bike ride along the Vaart, the long canal that connects Leuven to Mechelen. Upon our arrival at Mechelen, we will first enjoy a gourmet picnic lunch, featuring local artisanal cheeses, meats, fish, bread, and chocolates from Leuven, in a beautiful park just outside of the city centre. After lunch, we will bike into the city’s impressive Grote Markt (Great Market), where will visit the monumental St. Rumbold’s Cathedral and ascend its tower for beautiful views out into the distant countryside. From St. Rumbolds, we will go to Het Anker Brewery and next to the Molenberg Distillery (about 9 km from Mechelen city centre), where a guide will take you through the two buildings to teach you how they make their famous beers and popular Belgian whiskies.  During these tours, you will get to taste two samples of Het Anker’s beers and one sample of Molenberg’s whiskies! After our tastings, we will have a two-course dinner at Het Anker’s in-house restaurant. Once we finish with dinner, we will embark on the trip back to Leuven, taking in the beautiful Belgian sunset as we travel back along the canal.
