Grand-Place de Mons, Mons

4.3
Shop, eat, and people-watch at Grand-Place de Mons, the main square of Mons. It is marked by a belfry whose copper has turned green with oxidation. The buildings touch each other and form a barrier around the perimeter of the cobbled square. Sit down at one of the many restaurants and cafes; see if you can find an open table on one of the terraces, which is a good spot to take in the buzz of activity. You'll also find a variety of chocolate shops and boutiques filling the ground floors of the buildings. Before you visit Mons, use our trip planner to discover what you can do and see there.

  • Just a magical place steeped in history. The must is the monkey of the high place that can satisfy your wishes if you square his head with the right hand. To visit, the communal house. The pleasure, strolling and admiring the architecture of magnificent mansions... just splendid

  • Probably one of the most beautiful squares in Wallonia. The diversity of the styles of the facades reflects the rich history of the capital city of Hainaut.

  • I was looking at the tower and I said to myself.. Existence precedes Essence is very true. Why buying savoury gauffres with 2 eggs and maple syrup. A plank or two or 154756 make a good sculpture there
  • Lovely little square. Typical Belgian market area but without being overly busy. Relaxing and just quiet enough. Really nice food at several restaurants. Mussels are a must try. They were amazing everywhere we had them!
