•The village is not pet friendly (even for small dogs that you can carry in your hand) while they let parents leave their kids unattended touching clothes with dirty hands.
•The village is not really big however there is a decent selection of shops that are open during this covid period.
•Check prices before paying the outlet prices. I had kept note of some prices from their normal shops and waited to check the prices at their Maasmechelen outlet shop when they got the collection there and sometimes there is no real discount.
• Some shops get also the latest collections obviously with normal prices no discounts.
• During covid only 1 person per household was allowed in shops. This caused many to wait outside next to the door! Funny that overcrowding happens outside while the other person is shopping all alone using chatting apps to be able to get a feedback on items from their partner? Resulting in longer queues as people take longer to shop. Bad planning!
• Restaurants were currently closed due to covid. Crowded corners with people eating snacks standing was allowed. Prices of food from the little snacking stands were more expensive compared to pre covid.

We've visited some outlets, we'll OK we visited more than 'some', but this was somewhat of a disappointment.

The pricing was often too high, or the discount not sufficient (depends on how you look at it). Another negative point, for us, the brands you can find here. We hoped for more higher end brands also.

We'll consider another center next time!

Physically, the place is very nice and well kept, but the selection inside the stores is very underwhelming especially for Men. Long ques to enter the shops, employees not the friendliest in some stores. Restaurants and cafes are full with long ques. Prices also are not that cheap even with the sales season, online are way better deals. Glad I visited it to tick it off my list but nothing that impressed me.

The Village is super nice and it has many great brands like Scotch&Soda, Versace, Armani, Sandro... (btw I love my new shorts!) I have spent the day there and will definitely come back! Try the mussels in the restaurant Le Petit Belge, delicious!!

I was hugely disappointed by Maasmechelen Village. It essentially consists of one street, a short one, with shops on the left and on the right side. Go to their website before visiting, and you will see that the really good clothing brands are not there. Since I was there, I still did the work of going through the collections of the few shops and there was not a single piece I could buy. Standard sizes are systematically sold out. There was nothing I could take home except cutlery in the kitchen supplies shop, and I typically shop a lot!
Even the Belgian Wijnegem Shoppingcenter, an ordinary indoor mall, is better than Maasmechelen.
My recommendation is to skip Maasmechelen and to go to Aachen in Germany instead, which is right across the border, for better prices and a larger choice. If you prefer the Netherlands, go to Maastricht, which is a lovely shopping city with a large pedestrian zone.

A great place to do some discount shopping. They have a wide variety of stores allowing you to buy anything from clothes to vases. They will be able to help you in at least Dutch, English and French, and probably also German.
They also have several restaurants, but these are overpriced. Your best option for food is to go into the movie theater next to it (good food for not too expensive), or to go into the town itself.

If you love shopping and like doing it in style, Mass Mechelen Village is a great one! It is within Chic Outlets network and I have shopped in London, Paris, Milan and now in Belgium.
They do a wonderful job. People there are very friendly and helpful and importantly knowledgable.
I totally loved their coach! Not only you get fashion magazine to entertain yourself if you are bored looking out a window at a beautiful landscapte you get CHAMPAGNE too!
Well done guys! Keep up, open more shops, get more deals!

We had heard of this outlet village from some other people who work in Brussels and decided to try it out - all I can say is wear flat shoes and take your credit cards!
We only managed one of the sites in a day, but there are other bits to the village. Its set out beautifully with each of the shops in a pretty village street like location. There are a number of restaurants and bars to choose from and toilets/baby changing facilities.
But its the quality of the shops that we found so good - a Massive Hugo Boss outlet store with hundreds of gorgeous suits for hubby all at less than 400E! Large ladies section with scrummy shoes and boots at big discounts.
Calvin Klein, Hilfiger, Versace ( Yum!) Bognor etc....
And lots of housey type shops with Villeroy and Boch, lovely linens...
Oh - and baby clothes shops ( not my thing!)

Its junction 33 off the motorway - see the website for more details - but it is a long way off the motorway and we thought we'd gone wrong, but just follow the flags by the side of the road!

Happy Shopping!

What a disappointment! Expensive for what it is. No big choice and if you see something you like you will only find very small or very big sizes. I cannot call this an outlet shopping village. I drove over one hour to get there and left one hour later... So no, I do not recommend! Apparently there is a very nice and huge outlet just crossing the Dutch border (near Maastricht). Will try that one.

The outlet has been taken over indeed by Charles Kaisin from April to May 2019.

<>

Charles is a Belgian designer who transformed the Maasmechelen Village MMV (outlet) into a ‘Proud to be Belgian’ art style.

He used the Belgian flag national colors to create a cool (atmos)phere.

And take a ‘SELFIE’ at the 19.7 foot (6 meters) high ‘Manneken Pis’, meaning "Little Pisser" in Dutch.
The original statue is a landmark 61 cm (24 in) bronze sculpture in the centre of Brussels (Belgium), depicting a naked little boy urinating into a fountain's basin and was designed by Hiëronymus Duquesnoy the Elder.

Charles Kaisin did a great job on his very own surprising, humorous and slightly surrealist way.
