pedestrian area, alongside the "Leie", many terraces, crowded, nice atmosphere. It's the ideal spot to have a drink and observe the crowd.

You have to visit this place in the first weeks of october ! During the week ! Reason : students are present enjoying the sun, chatting,... This make the difference between Bugge and Ghent. Ghent lives with tourists and local people Brugge is an open air museum

A beautiful canal, but not the best view in Ghent. I have the feeling that you have to choose, pick another option.

We had a small stroll along this part of the canal. Not much compared to Graslei and Korenlei, but there are a few shops and restaurants here.

You can really relax here on canal bank. Just go there, take your drink and sit and just enjoy. In full sunny day, lots of fun-loving people especially youngsters will be hanging out there.

Having a pleasant stroll along the Kraanlei is something so beautiful, the quay surrounded by houses, gothic churches and the many restaurants and bars. It could be probably the top attraction of the city. Take the benefits of the good weather and get plenty of photos, it's stunning here.
