Worth a visit as it is free (donations gratefully received) and a great example of a house of a certain period. Good English guide to read as you walk around too. Open 2-6pm at the moment (Friday-Sunday only). Several rooms over two floors to visit.

A real gem among museums. I rarely see such rooms with all details of epoch. It seems like inhabitants just went out for a minute and would be back. Amazing feeling!
And it's free!
One thing to check before visit - opening hours. They are very limited.

Our old UK guidebook didn't even mention this fabulous mansion but thankfully our Gent Tourism guide did. A wonderful little gem of a place. We managed to get on a twice weekly tour - 2:30 Fridays and Saturdays - from the Museum across the street and so got to see their Chinese fabric covered salon too. The tour of both Mansions was €6, took 2 hours, and our guide was fabulous. She managed to transfix us all, the 6 locals and we two English tourists. The other staff/volunteers were friendly as well. I could happily have moved in! An oasis on one of the main shopping streets that is clearly missed by most. If you only have time for one place after the Van Eyke Triptych, make it this one!! Superb!

This town house of a noble family took its place in history in 1815 when the exiled King Louis XVIII of France sat out the Waterloo campaign which eventually saw Napoleon defeated and the King restored to the French throne. The Ground floor was his residence, whilst the family lived on the 1st floor. See the very room where Louis traditionally ate whilst the local populace watched him dine through the windows from the street and the ball room where the king received the officers of the British regiments during heir march from Ostend to Brussels and the Battle of Waterloo.
we were lucky to purchase a ticket for a tour (available in advance from the ticket office through the archway opposite the house at 55 Veldstraat) just as they started at 14.30 Friday and Saturdays only for individuals at 5E each. We (my wife & I) ended up having a private tour lasting 11/2 hours which was truly fascinating, both regarding the history of the house and building and Louis XVIII.
I would have happily paid 20Euros for the tour afterwards! A fascinating gem!

This is surely one of the hidden treasures of Ghent. Behind the rococo facade there's a beautiful and impressive 18th century city palace. The first floor has been restored meticulously and the much grander ground floor (including the ball room) hasn't, but in this way it has retained it's crumbling appeal.

Only accessible twice a week; there's a 1.5 to 2 hour tour on friday and on saturday at 14h30. It could be wise to book in advance.

Well worth the money. Buy a city pass and it works out cheaper. The guide was fantastic and knowledgeable.

Only saw it from the outside unfortunately. I believe a tour of it is well worth taking.
It is not as old as some of the other buildings in Ghent but due to its scale it certainly impressive.

This should not be city's best kept sercret
We were Fortunate enough to be able to take a tour of the two homes in English
Led by a docent Sylve ( she does many languages) lucky for us they were only 3 and the other person agree English only
Which makes me very happy
Sylve Was informative personable interesting with excellent English and made the house visit extra enjoyable
This is a much see if you enjoy house visit
A sumptuous town house rococo facade
Wow factor was who visited by invitation
King Louis xvlll of France bother and bother in law of the guillotined Louis xvlll .and Marie A ntoinette ( and me☺️)
The interiors are true to life
You can visit without guide but I really feel you would get a lot more out visit this house with a guide
Only open Friday Saturday and Sunday and guide tour at 2:30
Made it not a city best kept secret

Surprisingly this one is free admittance. You are required to don shoe covers to enter the ballroom (understandable to protect the inlaid wood floor). The wall and window coverings look to be period. Worth a peek if you have the time. I also found the kitchens in the basement interesting.
