Grand-Place de Mons, Mons

4.3
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.

  • Simply the Grand Place de Mons, pretty for lovers of old stones, it should be 100% pedestrian

  • .... to linger in the heart of Mons. Many small restaurants/cafés. The pictures are from the Feux de la Saint-Jean 2019

  • 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!
  • Great bars and restaurants can be found here. The kids love playing in the fountain. There seems to be plenty to do. There is lots of amazing art throughout the city.
