Small town, easy to visit in half a day. Good student atmosphere, cheap restaurants all over the place

Good views and pleasant small park overlooking the city for a stroll in. Worth considering getting a city pass if planning to see more than one or two of the attractions.

Nice hike up and enjoyed exploring. Did not pay to go up tower but did not feel like missing much. We had to find our way through a side alley to get there

It is a bit of a hike as the belfry is naturally at the top of a hill. I have been on multiple times, including running up the steps inside a couple of times as part of the Mons Urban trail series. The view gives...More
