Grand-Place de Mons, Mons

Must see · Landmark · Tourist Spot
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.

  • 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!
