About Mons

Mons only recently came to the attention of the Guru's once it became the European Capital of Culture in 2015 and here is our guide to the best places to stay in Mons.

Being the European Capital of Culture in 2015 alerted many of us about its collection of entertaining museums, it’s beautiful medieval centre and Grand Palace and the wonderful Ducasse de Mons of Doudou festival - a glorious week-long occasion with parades, golden carriages, mock battles between St. George and the dragon and plenty of beer.

What not to miss

  • The Mons Memorial Museum
  • Collegiale Sainte-Waudru, the most stunning church in Mons
  • The beautiful central area - Grand Palace.

Our Guru’s recommendations for the best places to stay in Mons are centred around the Grand Palace and the Gothic-tastic Church of Saint Waltrude.
