One of the most relaxed areas of Ghent

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...

You will find all kinds of restaurants here: French and Belgium cuisine, a popular Thais restaurant and sure something that wil fits you; small shops with a selection of good wines and specialities of cakes and chocolates. A nice coffee bar, open in the late afternoon. Behind this part of Gent you cross the Caermers cloister museum and just outside... More

Narrow network of streets, old buildings, interesting shops and restaurants. Even if you don't eat there, the strolling is wonderful.
