We're back in the land of belfries. Mechelen's is famous. So famous for its bells (carillons)that it has a prestigious school for wouldbe carilloners. We begin the climb to the top. Only 500+ steps.
After 200 there is a platform from where you can look down onto the organ loft. There is also a 500 year old 3 person treadmill. This was used to crane up the bells and masonry. The roof tiles are there to break the fall if the clock weight wire should ever break.
