Grand Place, Mons

(4.2/5 based on 800+ 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.

  • beautiful pedestrian square with cafes and restaurants have preserved the old facades. At the level of the building of the municipality, you have the famous monkey which you rub his head while making a wish. Not far away, there is the very beautiful to see Royal theatre.

  • A sober square that there most likely for WW II looked completely different. The bombing in World War II had to lead where Mons has clearly made its mark on the city's historic quarter.
