St. Rumbold's Tower
Dizzying view from St Rumbold's Tower over the center of town, in Mechelen, Belgium. The build started in the year 1492 and today it is a UNESCO World Heritage site. The Christmas market lasts until December 22nd and we got there just in time, the day before it ended. Not a big market but great food and very nice things being sold at different vendors. It's 97m tall and you have to climb 536 steps to get to this state of the art sky-walk. It's easier said than done. Once at the top, I will not lie, I was really scared. It was very windy and because of the glass, you feel like there is nothing there to protect you from falling. There is no real danger though, this is just how I felt.
