I've been to ghent twice.. Each time I visited the castle and the area around it. You just got to see the castle, looks like it is exactly the same from the past! Just beautiful. There are many restaurants around the castle and many are open late night.. when I was there, there was a festival and was really hype!

Experience a piece of medieval history in this well preserved castle in the center of the town. Make sure you visit the torture chambre!

When visiting Ghent one should definitely also visit the medieval castle of the counts of Flanders. One of the must do items when visiting this hip city.

The outside of the castle is nice to look at. Tip......take a boottour and see the castle from the boat at evening, much nicer then by daylight.
