Grand Place, Mons
(4.2/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
Shop, eat, and people-watch at Grand Place, 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. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Mons holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Grand Place and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • On this typical place of the Belgium, many terraces attracting the tourstes and unfortunately also the club of motorcycles, scooters and old cars especially bikers compete in who will be the loudest. We went there several times and each time the same rodeo

  • Nice square in the heart of Mons. The restaurants were very full and hit all of them. That is of course fine, except if you are hungry and are looking for a table.
