If you want to try something new for a city trip then Mons might be exactly what you’re looking for. This cute little town in Belgium is located close to the French border. The historic city center of Mons gives you the true feeling of being abroad. And that is exactly what you’re looking for during a weekend city trip. Book a room at the boutique hotel Dream and relax in the sauna there.
We loved the restaurants and the great food there. For a small town Mons has many good restaurants! Try Le Bistro de Jean Phi, icook or Vilaine Fille, Mauvais Garçons. And don’t miss Cocotte for brunch! When it comes to shopping Mons has some cute boutiques and keep your eyes open for the street art.
If you’re looking for a more quiet and relaxed weekend getaway this town is what you’re looking for. Also nice: it’s only a 3 hour drive from Amsterdam! In this Mons Travel Guide you find some tips for a great weekend.
