“One huge disappointment! Not many shops, the good brands are missing”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

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.

“waste of time”
Reviewed June 25, 2014

Terrible place - more welcoming to Hitler than a british tourist. Massively overpriced - not worth the trip

“Good shoping”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

A wide selection of marks and goods, but if there are no discounts the prices are the same like in normal shops.
But if you are so lucky and you can find a discounts you will buy a goods 2 for a 1 or five pieces (ex. shoes) with 70% of price.
The outlet village is closing to soon. After you finish at work and you want to buy something you can find a shops that are going to close.
My favorite is Hilfinger where I always buy something.

Wish you a pleasant shopping
