Discover Mons Maisieres and surroundings by car
Since being crowned the European City of Culture back in 2015, Mons has become an increasingly popular tourist destination offering a wide range of beautiful sites that are best explored by car. Top places of interest include the Mons Memorial Museum which gives a deeper insight into both World Wars, as well as the the Strepy-Thieu Boat Lift which is a remarkable feat of engineering.
If you’d like to venture further afield, the Belgium capital of Brussels is just over an hour’s drive away and is home to many fascinating attractions including the Grand Palace, St. Michael and St Gudula Cathedral, the Royal Palace – used by the Belgium Royal family as their official residence – and the Belgian Royal Museum of Fine Arts. Another of Brussels’ unforgettable and somewhat unusual landmarks is the Atomium, a 102-meter-high steel and aluminium structure, designed by the architect André Waterkeyn for the 1958 Brussels World Exhibition.
If you wish to continue your tour of Belgium further, Antwerp is a beautiful port city to the north of Brussels with a rich and fascinating history dating to the Middle Ages. You could also head north-west towards Ghent, a quaint university town with a pedestrianized centre well-known for its medieval architecture.
Driving in Mons Maisieres
When driving throughout Belgium, be sure to stay on the right hand side of the road and overtake on the left. Roads are generally well-maintained and signposted, but if you head into Brussels be aware that the European Area can get particularly busy, so be sure to leave plenty of time to get to your required destination.
On-street parking is available throughout Mons and Brussels. This is often limited and chargeable so be sure to check out the local signage if possible – and keep a look out for parking metres. Parking in the centre of Brussels can be expensive, so you might prefer to make use of the eight free Park and Ride locations on the outskirts of the city with locations including Roodebeek and Kraainem.
