Walking through Patershol's narrow, cobble-lined streets is like walking during medieval times. There are also interesting restaurants in and around the Patershol were dining is a pleasure.

This a old district where in the past poor people lived and now artisan near the castle Gravensteen. It's very romantic walking between the old houses and narrow streets. You find in those small streets lots of restaurants , and museums and art.

A lot of restaurants within this area, located just a short distance away from Gravensteen castle. Beers are cheap and atmosphere was fantastic.

and have a walk around, it looks better at night time but good in the afternoon. There are many hidden little restaurants and each turn takes you on a new adventure so that you have to double back on yourself so not to miss something.

This is where you will find Gravansteen Castle, Het Huis van Alijn and a handful of narrow, cobblestone lanes that date back to the medieval period. The narrow streets are lined with charming buildings. It... More

Winding cobbled streets containing hidden restaurants, the north-west end of which is a carmelite monastery (well worth visiting) and the amazing Amadeus restaurant. TIP: as you approach the district, look for the bird sculpture made from cutlery!

Lots of restaurants - spoilt for choice. Everything from low budget to fairly expensive.Wide choice of cuisines from Indian to Turkish - latter is cheapest.
