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 Collegiale Sainte-Waudru 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 still lots to do: stroll the grounds of St Symphorien Military Cemetery, get to know the resident critters at Pairi Daiza, explore the engaging exhibits at SPARKOH!, and admire the masterpieces at Francois Duesberg Museum.

To see where to stay, traveler tips, ratings, and other tourist information, you can read our Mons road trip planner.

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. June in Mons sees daily highs of 24°C and lows of 13°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 5th (Sun) early enough to go by car back home.

Hainaut Province travel guide

Zoos · Landmarks · Specialty Museums
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.
