The outlet houses well over 100 shops on its 19,700 m² of floor space. Among them, visitors will find well-known brands such as Armani, Boss and Calvin Klein. In addition to a wide range of brands, the culinary offer on site is also very diverse.

In addition to fashion, the range of shops also includes accessories, decoration and furnishings as well as cosmetics. Throughout the year, Maasmechelen Village is open to visitors daily from 10 am to 7 pm, with the exception of 25 December and 1 January.

The hotel's gourmet restaurant welcomes guests with light French cuisine, prepared with products from the region.
Romantik Parkhotel Het Gulpdal is located about 50 kilometres from the outlet in the Dutch village of Slenaken.
