About Maasmechelen Village
So, when you’re considering your options for shopping at the weekend, what would you say are the factors that really tend to put you off the prospect?
For many, if not most, the fact that the day normally starts with either a congested trip by car into the city centre, followed by an exhaustive (and exhausting) search for parking that doesn’t cost you the earth, or there is a similar crush and stress on public transport, are just what don’t set you up for a ‘relaxing’ day’s shopping. Then, of course, you’re in a very long queue in most outlets, and spend more of your funds than perhaps you ought to.
But there is another way, and it is to be found at Maasmechelen Village, which is located at the crossroads between Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands. And the drive is a relaxing one – there are rarely, if ever, congestion issues and there is plentiful and free parking upon your arrival.
Then, once you begin to enjoy your shopping in the more than 110-plus top-quality boutiques and brands that are on site, you will notice another different approach – an absence of huge crowds, no music blasting out of every speaker, and a green, pleasant environment in which to walk, explore and shop.
Set in the heart of the Belgian national park, with superb hotel accommodation and a one-star Michelin restaurant on hand should you decide to make a weekend of it, the emphasis of the experience is firmly placed on hospitality, with the best-fitted outlets, warmest personnel and a tourist information centre to provide you with hints and tips on what there is available to do in the region.
And getting there couldn’t be easier – by car, it’s just an hour from Antwerp, Brussels, Düsseldorf and Cologne and around 30 minutes from Maastricht and Liège. There are also regular SNCB trains to Genk station, and there is a luxury daily coach service that runs from the centre of Brussels to Maasmechelen Village. Upon arrival, you will receive a Village Directory and a VIP Day Pass entitling you to a 10% saving in nine boutiques of your choice (not available during sales periods). And, coming from elsewhere, De Lijn runs regular hourly bus services from Genk or Hasselt train stations (No 45) to Maasmechelen Village, with both journeys taking around an hour.
