Reception and experience centre Hoge Mote, MUST - museum of textile and the Crypt of St-Hermes (Tourism Ronse)

DE BIESESTRAAT 2, 9600 Ronse • www.visitronse.be
Tel: 055/23.28.16 • toerisme@ronse.be

The Hoge Mote, centrally located at the historic town centre, is without any doubt a highly innovative reception and experience centre. The restoration of the site is a must-see: it is a fine heritage site with surprising contemporary touches and is the home base of the Ronse tourist office (Toerisme Ronse). The perfect start for a walking tour of the town or a discovery of the region.
By means of interactive panels, audio recordings of stories, films and virtual reality, visitors can find out more about Saint Hermes, the development of Ronse and of the textile sector, as well as Flanders’ finest landscape. The information is available in four languages.
The Hoge Mote already had three towers, and with a fourth tower the view is now complete.

The Romanesque crypt of Saint Hermes is unique in Belgium and is not to be missed under any circumstances. It is highly remarkable both aesthetically and archaeologically. In 1089 the crypt was consecrated as a storage area for the relics of Saint Hermes. Audio guides are available in four languages (Dutch, French, English, and German).
