Beautiful spot in the old historic center of Gent. Lots of special old houses, sometimes too much repaired though

This is the best place to see while you are in a beautiful city in Ghent. You can have a boat trip to explore the city.

One of the best walks I ever had, although relatively short one ;-) This is the place you see on Gent postcards. Has some nice restaurants. Have had long chit chats over drinks over here. Coming here during a Gentse Feesten is a real pleasure.

The place to be and to be seen with lots of bars and restaurants but everywhere is two or three times the price you'd expect to pay in Brussels or Antwerp. Nice view of canal and plenty of people watching

You can get a train to Gent and it's a 40 mins walk form the train station or you can get a tram and it will take only 10mins.
