“cradle of the city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2012

Here is where the rivers Schelde and Leie come together. Here is where it all started. The Marina is a nice place to while away an hour or so. To the left, on the other side of the water, there is a wooden platform. From there the view on the Marina is wonderful. And ist's the perfect place to play some music and bring a bottle of wine. But keep it a secret please...

“living there”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

This is one of my favourite spots in ghent. Living just around the corner, this place is fabulous when the sun has set early evening. Then the lights of the innerharbor light the whole place. very beautiful when there are no clouds. Some point of criticism... it can be very windy over there.

“Perfect for city sunbathing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2011

No better place in the center of Ghent for a quick sun tan. While Graslei and Korenlei are overcrowded on hot days and suffer from garbage and broken bottles, the lowered quays of this marina are ideal for sunbathing. If you prefer lying in the grass, the park next to the swimming pool is another option. The only thing missing is some paddle boat rental or an open air swimming pool.
