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! Leave the station at the back and follow “ZOO Planckendael Express” pictograms to the shelter of our bus connection where you can wait for the next ZOO Planckendael Express.
