Part of the beauty of the city, Patershol is a neighbourhood in the centre with a lot of bookshops, restaurants and bars. It is 'the Marais' of Gent. Go there, very nice. Place for foodies also!!

This old quarter of Ghent is buzzing with restaurants and bars in the evening. Quite nice to visit even if not eating or drinking there. But during the day the narrow streets and medieval architecture make for a very charming & interesting walk.

Old neighbourhood close to the castle, now a trendy area with lots of narrow alleys and lanes dating back to the Middle Ages. Populated with cafes, bars and restaurants.

A walk around this area which is home to many restaurants, all open after 18.00 hours. We ate at the Klokhuys, which was reasonable.

This was in the past, 100 years ago, one of the poorest parts from Ghent. Today it has been turned into a cozy place where you can find very fine restaurants.

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.
