Although it doesn’t feel like it when you’re floating on the Maas in a boat, when you’re lying on the Terland Beach, or when you’re cycling through the beautiful heathland, Maasmechelen is indeed in Belgium. And unfortunately, the weather is often ‘Belgian’ too. That’s why we’ve drawn up the perfect rainy-day list for you.

Bowling Admiral

Whether it’s with the family, friends, or colleagues, bowling is always guaranteed to be fun.


Cargo Karting

Do you prefer action and speed? Then go full throttle on the Cargo Karting track. You can come here as an individual or a group. Check the special group rates and current promotions on the website.

Railway Brick Museum

Belgium’s first LEGO brick museum is located in Maasmechelen and focuses on the history of LEGO trains. This museum has several play areas where you can build a work of LEGO art yourself.


Museum of the Miner’s Home

Immerse yourself in the life of the miners in the 1930s. The typical furniture and wallpaper, a crackling radio, and an original current distributor give you a good idea of the everyday life of a miner.


Children’s Museum

This experience museum will be a pleasant trip back in time for the older folks among us. For the young people, however, it is a voyage of discovery to another time. How did people live (and survive) without all the facilities and technology we have today? Learn about the past in the discovery museum. Combine a trip to this museum with a visit to the Museum of the Miner’s Home.



Of course, you can always catch a movie, whether the weather is good or not. View the listings and showtimes on the website and enjoy the best and latest films.
