You can be sure of one thing, and that is that you will never get bored in Mons. Art is around every corner and history unfolds like an open book. With museums, walks along typical old alleyways and monuments that invite you to step back through time, the capital of Hainaut offers a refreshing change of scene. A baroque belfry and a breath-taking Grand-Place, not to mention an unbelievable selection of little shops... The years may have passed, but Mons has managed to retain all of its authentic charm.
