Gravensteen Castle was an interesting stop on a recent visit to Ghent. It is right across from the tourist office, which should be anyone’s first stop. The self-guided tour is well laid out and informative. Be aware that the circular stone stairways are a bit tricky to navigate. Although the plaques describing the rooms are multi-lingual, the notes on particular exhibits of armor and such are not. Also, the room of torture is not for the squeamish. Watch your step, but this is a Ghent must see.
