Sightseers and architects alike will be satisfied by the town hall, the many large churches, and other historic buildings that constitute the skyline. If you plan carefully, you could arrange a stay in a Sint-Niklaas hotel, overlooking the actual Church of Saint Nicholas, a superb 13th Century construction that still stands, despite being heavily damaged in the 16th Century. History fans should pay a visit to the Geradus Mercator Museum, named after one of the world's great cartographers, whose work allowed us to see the world map as we do today. See two of his original globes, along with countless other priceless artefacts by booking a Sint-Niklaas hotel today.
The city has long been synonymous with trade in the region, although initially its prosperity was linked closely to the flax and wool industries. Today, visitors to hotels in Sint-Niklaas may also wish to shop for designer gear on the prestigious Stationsstraat, centrally located, which attracts people from the entire area, or in the Waasland Shopping Centre, just out of town. Those looking for a relaxing night's stay should check into the Ibis Sint-Niklaas hotel, located close to the exceptionally large town square, which is ideal for business travellers and pleasure seekers alike.
