Mons Belfry: a fascinating monument

  • Monument
  • Architectural heritage

Discover the full beauty of Belgium's only baroque belfry by taking its panoramic lift and enjoying the view over the city.

Listed by UNESCO as part of the world heritage, this 87-metre-high tower, built in the 17th century, is a remarkable architectural masterpiece. Its interpretative centre will tell you more about its history.

Bell concerts

The skills of its carillonneurs have been recognised by UNESCO as intangible heritage of humanity. Make the most of your visit. Have a look once you are at the top: the 49 chiming bells ring out their traditional melody every quarter of an hour.

Animations are organised throughout the year in the garden or inside the tower: bell concerts, visits by night, guided tours, banquets, concerts in the garden.
