Old part of town with something quaint to see everywhere you turn. We lucked out with a music festival and a huge secondhand market. The place was packed and the atmosphere terrific. There is an abundance of restaurants and bars. Enjoy!

Tired of the main attractions? Need a break? Walk through the little streets and alleays of patershol, the old aristrocrats quater of Ghent. You can also find nice places to eat here. It is not very big, but nevertheless worth visiting.

Medieval cobbled streets and buildings with delightful restaurants and bars. A lot to see and photograph all within a small area so you won't have to walk too far. It's also adjacent to other delightful areas. When I go to Ghent I always come here.

Frequented by locals and tourists alike, there is always a spot in one of the many cosy bars in the narrow streets of the Patershol.

Was here with friends in April 2015 on a beautiful, mild, sun-in-shining day. It's a lovely neighborhood--narrow cobblestone streets, charming Belgian architecture, character spilling out of the walls. Perfect for an afternoon stroll with no particular destination, although the many restaurants in the area will tempt you! We really enjoyed our time in this part of the city.

A district of lanes and tiny houses - up and coming? Detour from the castle, and to see exhibitions at the Caemersklooster - in June 2015 the conservation survey of the Lam Gods picture by Van Eyck is OUTSTANDING.

I fell in love with the Patershol neighborhood, the heart of medieval Ghent. It hasn't been overly polished, so it retains an air of authenticity. Charming narrow, cobbled streets aren't yet overrun with slick shops and restaurants, though they seem to be taking hold. (We walked around on a Monday afternoon, when the restaurants were closed, so there were very... More

Don't miss this part of Gent. Just stroll around the small, narrow streets, get 'lost' and enjoy yourself. Lots of nice little restaurants...
