Not far from Brussels, Mons is home to a World Heritage Site, the former home of Van Gogh, and Roman ruins. Visitors come to experience a plethora of museums and historical buildings, including the Baroque-style belfry from the 17th century, the city hall, and a house belonging to the artist Van Gogh during his time in Mons (which is open to the public). The city's historical center draws tourists, as does an annual mock-battle that floods the city streets with visitors. Customize your holiday with our Belgium attractions website to create an adventure that suits you.
