Gent is great because it is so small and safe. We decided to take a walk around Patershol and loved the cute homes, cobblestone streets, small restaurants and shops. If you have time, it's nice to take a leisurely stroll with no plan in mind

This is an old part of the city, with lots of different shops, cafés, places to eat and so cosy. Just walk into the narrow streets and let go!

I always find this place quaint, peaceful and quiet. Maybe I just always went on the right time in the afternoon but never busy. Worth to just have a little look around.

Hi, the area is so tiny that it is difficult to get lost. The best is to stroll around and to enjoy the atmosphere as it is. If you still want directions, I would advise you to enter from the waterside, take the... More
