This is the postcard image of Ghent. Its a must visit when passing through - not sure why you would visit the city overwise - and there is a great relaced vibe. Everything you would want to see is here, lovely architecture, bar and restuarants....More

If you're in Ghent, this is a must see, a relaxing stroll and plenty of bars, cafes to stop and people watch. Also take the boat trip, great value.

Stunning little area overlooking the canal with Graslei on one side and Korenlei on the other. Lots of nice outside bars and restaurants to sit and watch the world.

This area is simply beautiful at all times of the day and evening. Make it a point to be there at sunset and after dark when the buildings are illuminated. Its just magical.

A city that has all what a real city should have: gentle and cozy people, a broad spectrum for all kinds of interest areas: culinary, historical, nice walks, shopping and joy of life... Especially the Gras- and Korenlei are spots to visit, have a beer...More

I was there in September not sure about Winter. Worth checking, But if you can visit Brugges, I think that canal tour would be much more picturesque! The part of Ghent on the canal that's the most beautiful is the short... More
