Route & Duration
Saint Waltrude Collegiate Church
The east end of the church was first built in 1450, marking the beginning of its existence. As a collegiate church, it was constructed for a female religious community. Until the end of the 18th century's revolutionary era, its chapter of canonesses was still active. The canonesses were frequently from noble families.
Beffroi de Mons
One of the most recent belfries in Belgium and France is that of Mons. This bell tower is a significant piece of Wallonia's cultural heritage and has been classified in Belgium since January 15, 1936. Because of its distinctive architecture, civic significance, and role in the development of local government authority, it was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List on December 1, 1999. It is the only baroque-style building in Belgium. It towers over Mons, which was built on a hill, at a height of 87 metres.
The BAM is intended to be a singular experience, a place to explore artistic creativity in all of its forms, and a living environment where activities take place all year round. Since the museum's architecture has been conserved, this strongly contemporary architectural solution now blends practicality and museum rigour with aesthetics while still giving prominence to light-filled circulation spaces that make the most of transparency.
Aiming to compile all of human knowledge and organise it using the Universal Decimal Classification, the Mundaneum was a scholarly organisation. Lawyers from Belgium, Paul Otlet and Henri La Fontaine, created it at the beginning of the 20th century. It has been said that the Mundaneum was a turning point in the development of data management and, rather hazily, that it was the forerunner of the Internet.
