Wonderful place to just walk around. We were very lucky and had two very hot sunny days. Boat trips really worth doing at 6.50e for a 50 minute trip and lots of information and photo opportunities. Lots of places to eat and drink. Castle, museums, churches and canals, what more could you want. If you like Brugge you will love Gent.

Gent is a beautiful city - I can't say any more than that - its a must see place - no doubt. We had no idea how spectacular it is.

What a lovely city - wonderful old buildings and picturesque canals. What's not to like? I'd love to have stayed longer.

Ghent ,one of the most beautiful city's in Belgium, and once a year usually mid July it holds the most fantastic festival.
Music to suit everyone, rock and roll, jazz, classical,opera, whatever you'r choice you will find it here.
Street theatre, acrobats, mime, its all here, and its all free.
Restaurants galore, and believe me the food is good, its not all steak and frits, every type of beer, they are famouse for there beers, just check the volume, some are very strong,
The trip on the canal is very interesting and worth doing, and a visit to Gravensteen castle( right in the city centre) is superb.
Transport is excellent, train , tram and local buses are not expensive and staff are so helpful, you could hire a bike and really be one of the locals.

Today the old town lies between the rivers Schelde and Leie and consists of small narrow streets. Around the 9th century the town was destroyed by the Normans.As a result the counts of Flanders decided to build a fortified stronghold which later became known as the "Gravensteen".
