St. Rumbold's Cathedral (Dutch: Sint-Romboutskathedraal) is the Belgian metropolitan archiepiscopal cathedral in Mechelen, dedicated to Saint Rumbold, Christian missionary and martyr who had founded an abbey nearby. His remains are rumoured to be buried inside the cathedral. State-of-the-art examination of the relics honoured as Saint Rumbold's and kept in a shrine in the retro-choir, showed a life span of about 40 years and a death date between 580 and 655, while tradition had claimed 775 AD.Put St. Rumbold's Cathedral into our Mechelen trip itinerary maker site to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Mechelen.

St. Rumbold's Cathedral reviews
Quite unique tower that can be seen from all around (and outside of) the city. Inside is lighter and airier than most churches, which I usually find rather dim and creepy. more »
You have to walk > 500 steps for a Scenic view of the town. It is good to know to look into the different work-levels while going upwards. The floors are not reachable when going downwards. (COVID). more »
The climb is over 500 steps but it's worth every step. The view is astonishing. On a clear day you can see Brussels with the Atomium and Antwerp with it's harbour.
An impressive structure. Great art pieces, statues of the apostles, stain glass windows. A place to meditate, find peace and gain clarity for the Zen traveler.
