Hi. My wife and I will be in Brussels and Ghent next week for a 40th birthday and also a wedding anniversary celebration. A couple of questions. We will be coming on the train from Brussels to Ghent on Sunday afternoon. We are staying at the Castelnou aparthotel on Kasteellaan. This only looks like a walk of about 1km on the map. Is this about right?
We think we know what sights we are going to see but I need some info on the pubs. Whenever we visit somewehere we always seem to find the best pub just as we are leaving. Any reccommendations? We will be trying to get back to the airport at Brussels a few days later. Do we just have to catch a train back from Ghent, change trains and then onto the airport or does anyone know of a better way? Any other tips would be most appreciated as this is our first visit. Thanks
