    Place to meditation, quiet and intimate. One of the few military cemeteries where both are English and German soldiers. This was the condition given by the owner of the land who agreed to surrender. He wanted that all men are equal before death.

    WWI cemetery with both allied and german sldiers buried there. The first and last soldier who died are buried in this place. Nice place to remember horror of wars

    Having just completed a tour of the area this cemetery is by far the nicest settings for such a sad place, a few seats would be useful for a time of contemplation especially for the less able.

    A must see for those interested, one of the most beautiful cemetery I visited at the moment. A special feature: three graves, the first British soldier killed in action in 1914, the grave of the last British soldier killed on 11 November 1918, and the grave of an officer who was awarded the Victoria Cross (see photos). A special feature on German tombstones of a style can share. The layout and realization of the cemetery is a high quality design.

    walking among the graves of young men of barely eighteen years old, died for the honour of their country and to preserve freedom, all because of the stupidity of a few men. A great moment of emotion and sadness that could transpose into many places in the world. A must if you come to Mons

Where to stay in Mons

Despite its close proximity to the capital, Mons attracts enough visitors in its own right to offer a small variety of accommodation options. You'll find mostly small, independent hotels clustered in the compact city center and, if you look carefully, a modest selection of low-budget lodgings. To cut costs, consider staying in Brussels and making the short trip by train for the day.
