The belfry of Mons is one of the more recent among the belfries of Belgium and France. This belfry, classified in Belgium since 15 January 1936, belongs to the major cultural patrimony of Wallonia. It was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List on 1 December 1999, for its unique architecture, civic importance, and testimony to the birth of municipal influence and power in the area. It is the only one in Belgium that is constructed in baroque style. At a height of 87 meters, it dominates the city of Mons, which is constructed on a hill itself.

  • Great view of Mons from the top. Make sure to time your visit to find you next to the bells when they chime. Every 15 minutes but more at the top of the hour.

  • We visited the Belfry on the late afternoon. Charming building, nicely restaurated. Best view on the city and the region.

  • Not worth the price (9eur in 2022). The visit takes at most 15 minutes. They make it seem that you can go to the very tip of the tower, but it is not possible. There are some screens with information, and some windows (VERY dirty) with the view of the city. I recommend to Just walk around the park and take some photos, the view is almost the same.
  • It's so beautiful, the whole town looks like a fairy-tale.
