Main Square in Ghent.
Dec 2019 • Solo
This is the main square in Ghent which is surrounded by some historical buildings, cafes and restaurants. During the X'mas season, this is also where the X'mas Market is. Great place to visit.

Had a walk round here as it I believe the main square in Ghent.
It certainly didn’t disappoint as the architecture is stunning. There are also numerous places to eat and drink if you want. Weather was a bit against us but it was certainly worth the effort. Definitely recommend and would love to visit again.

Lots of people, trams, bikes.....nothing really special aside from the views. I would walk through it, take it in for a few minutes and keep walking.

The Korenmarkt is a really nice big square full of pubs, restaurants and shops that is really popular with visitors and students carrying books and wearing berets.

Lovely Historic Area
Jul 2019
The centre of Ghent is a historical area, where you will see some great architecture and many coffee shops. This area is frequented by tourists and locals and is very popular. In this area you will find the Gothic St Nicholas church. As we were wandering around here we came across men with large bubble makers, which drew a crowd around. You can have a go making large bubbles for a small fee. There is plenty of shopping to be done as well. Or just take your time and stroll around this wonderful old area and enjoy all that's on offer.

Worth Doing
Oct 2019
This area is the starting point for one of the Rick Steves walks and we found it well worth doing. We found this spot easily enough by hopping on a tram at the train station and we began a long circular stroll that lasted about 3 hours with a light snack tossed in. A great way to experience old Ghent.
