Must see in Ghent

This is one of the oldest parts of Ghent, with narrow and cobble stone streets. It was my favourite area of Ghent. Definitely not to miss!

This historic area is good to wander around. There are lots of restaurants, but when we were there, mid-week, there were many in the little side streets, which were shut.

beautiful little part of the city, with very small street and cobblestones, just be careful because cars are allowed too and get very close. Many great restaurants, but a bit pricier, more of a bohemian-chique feel to it.

Lots of Turkish restaurants that serve halal food. Tried Gok Restaurant over there and had a seafood platter for two, which was amazing and reasonably priced.

Think we walked round these streets at the wrong time. They were nice to walk round but think around dusk might of been nicer. Lights would of been lit and the buildings would of been lit up. Loved looking at the different facades here and some buildings are really old! Do recommend but we'd go early evening if here again:)

Used to live in Ghent,up to 26 years ago. When I was little nobody would just walk there as a tourist since it was a dangerous place. Now, the whole area is transformed into a really nice area for tourists with great restaurants and little shops!

It's worth taking a stroll along Patershol, to step out of the centre and to just lose yourself for a while.there are lots of narrow cobbled lanes with a scattering of small cosy restaurants.The area maintains it's ancient charm but has more of a local rather than an urban feel about it.

This it the old city of Gent, and it has more charm and personality than the main shopping streets. There are many older shops to enjoy and the original Amadeus ribs restaurant is back in the Patershol as well. I recommend spending the afternoon exploring this lovely part of Gent and have lunch or dinner while you are there!
