Planckendael Express

When you come off the train in Mechelen get on the Planckendael Express at the rear of Mechelen station. You cannot miss it. It’s a splendid bus featuring all kind off animals. 

The Express leaves every 15 minutes from the rear of Mechelen station and takes you to the park entrance in under 10 minutes. Just like a limousine. A ZOO Planckendael host rides along with you on the shuttle to give you all kinds of explanations.

Timetable Planckendael Express

The Planckendael Express runs from Easter holidays until the end of September, during all school holidays, weekends and bank holidays.

Can I take the Planckendael Express on the day of my visit?

The first Express departs at 9.45 am from Mechelen, the latest shuttle from Planckendael leaves fifteen minutes after the park’s closing time. The two Express busses drive back and forth, each with the capacity to transport 125 visitors.
