Driving destinations


Since its reign as the European Capital of Culture in 2015, Mons has as found its footing as a classic tourist destination.

The city is home to a quirky collection of museums, three UNESCO sites and historic architecture. It’s also well noted for the ancient Doudou Festival, which is held every year on Trinity Day. It is a significant spectacle of folklore, as a 10-metre-long green dragon battles Saint George. Mons' compact centre makes it well suited for the daytripper, though there is enough to see over two or three days.

Mons is located 50km from Charleroi Airport, making it closer to the airport than Brussels itself.
