Your host is an official city guide and an unfailing source of information about the rich heritage of Mons!
The city centre, with all its twisting back streets, is one of the most beautiful in Belgium and is remarkably put to value within the framework of Mons 2015...
It is also very much an open-air shopping mall and the vast pedestrian zone starts at 50 meters from the house!
You can go and admire the magnificent panorama of the Belfry park, the Renaissance sculptures by Dubreucq in the Grand Collegiate Church of Saint Waudru or discover the brand new museums of Mons (Artothèque, Silex’s, museum of the Doudou...)
Our city naturally seduced UNESCO and no less than 3 sites (the baroque Belfry, the Neolithic Mines of Spiennes and the Mundaneum or Paper Internet) have been registered. The famous Doudou tradition(www.doudou.mons.be
), which also has its museum, is now part of UNESCO Intangible World Heritage.
And let us not forget the Duesberg museum of decoration arts or the Mons Memorial Museum, because Mons is renowned for its historic battles... For instance during the First World War, as has been observed in 2014 by Majesties Kate, William and Harry on the centenary occasion.
