Gent is a place where the old is preserved so that people of our time could truly enjoy its beauty within. A place where I would definitely come to see again and again if I could! It's a magical town where peace and tranquility exist within its people and surrounding.

Ghent has managed to retain it's medieval history through architectural guidelines. New businesses can change the inside but the facade must remain intact. Ghent has a variety of museums to visit from the Industrial Museum to the new Aljin Museum. This historic city provides travellers with a variety of restaurants. If you are in Ghent on a Friday don't miss the market in the main square. A variety of vendors ranging from clothes, fresh sea food, fruits and vegetables.

For accomodations the NH St. Peters and NH Belfort are excellent value properties.

Beautiful! We walked around for hours and went on a canal tour also. Both were worth it. Chocolate shops are plentiful also and their chocolates are pretty amazing. Lots to see, but it's not tiring. Much more open and more to see than Brugges.

Ghent is truly a city that inspires fairy tales. The whole town is made of the stuff of old time story telling. I can see how travellers prone to childhood nostalgia get that sweet sentiment for the grand town houses on the banks on either side of the river. The ale-houses, the little cosy inns, the church spires dominating the little city and the snow on the rooftops and on the window sills to complete the effect of an illustrated story-book. It is a city where you would immediately feel welcome and that you can easily discover in a short time. Such a lovely picture would inevitably draw you to the spots where the people come together, especially on a wintry day. A mug of beer is definitely like being in Ghent but a cup of piping hot coffee on a cold February day will surely find you in good company as you look out towards very agreeable scenery from the window of a snug cafe.
