Create an itinerary including Grand-Place de Mons
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.

  • Gorgeous old platz, with lot of cafes. Beautiful architecture, cozy surrounding, makes you feel like you got lost in time. Great place to spend an evening or to have dinner. Many restaurants are there, some are serving without a break. Can definitely recommend visiting it.
