Mons — 2 nights

Not far from Brussels, Mons is home to a World Heritage Site, the former home of Van Gogh, and Roman ruins.
Attractions like Grand-Place de Mons and Francois Duesberg Museum make great kid-friendly stops. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Mons: Tournai (Notre Dame Cathedral & The Belfry of Tournai) and Le Bois du Cazier (in Charleroi). There's much more to do: stroll the grounds of St Symphorien Military Cemetery, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Pairi Daiza, explore the engaging exhibits at SPARKOH!, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Collegiale Sainte-Waudru.

Before you visit Mons, use our trip planner to discover what you can do and see there.

Brussels to Mons is an approximately 1.5-hour car ride. You can also take a train; or do a combination of train and bus. In June, plan for daily highs up to 24°C, and evening lows to 13°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 5th (Sun) to allow time to drive back home.

Hainaut Province travel guide

A land of vibrant towns and undulating rural areas, Hainaut province sits in the westernmost section of Belgium. Nestled against the French border, the "Green Province" often appears far removed from the rest of the country, its inhabitants heartily devoted to local carnivals steeped in centuries of history and tradition. Overlooked by many tourists, Hainaut remains one of the country's less-frequented regions. The town of Mons serves as Hainaut's major center of culture and provides a comfortable urban base for day trips to the nearby World Heritage-listed flint mines, used over 4,000 years ago.
