Things to do Breendonk and Mechelen Concentration Camp

Just an hour by train from Brussels is Fort Breendonk, one of the best-preserved concentration camps in all of Europe. It is also one of the most paradigmatic due to its internal functioning, due to the relations it maintained with the province of Antwerp and with the inhabitants of the town of Willebroek, where it is located.

We take you from Brussels to the Breendonk fort. We will reveal to you all the history and secrets of its facilities, its operation and the history of both the 3,500 prisoners who suffered in its walls and that of their executioners, at a time when there will be no shortage of heroes born of ordinary people who decided to face the horror in this dark episode of both Belgian and European history.

We also take advantage of part of the day to visit Mechelen, a historical and cultural city, seat of the archbishopric of Belgium and capital of the Netherlands in the 16th century, where Carlos I of Spain and V of Germany spent his childhood.

In the period of the Second World War, Mechelen had a transit camp, the Dossin Barracks, from where thousands of Jews who were in Belgium were transferred to certain death in the Auschwitz camp. Today it is a picturesque city with a set of medieval architecture and the Cathedral of San Romualdo, which houses remarkable works of Flemish art.

Get ready for a trip full of strong emotions with our excursion to Mechelen and Breendonk Concentration Camp!
