What to See in Ghent

Unless you know what you are doing or have a good book, get the tour. There are a couple of walking tours which are great.

Great places are the three towers of Ghent:

  • the cathedral of St. Bavo (with the famous medieval altarpiece painting 'Adoration of the Mystic Lamb'),
  • the church of St. Nicholas
  • and the Belfort (Belfry).

The Graslei and Korenmarkt are fine places to walk and relax along the river while you admire 13th century trading houses. Also the Gravensteen (Castle of the Counts) and Vrijdagmarkt (Friday Market) are must-sees. Around the medieval core of the city, there is also lots of impressive 18th and 19th century architecture. Especially the 'socialist' Jugendstill/Art Nouveau buildings from around 1900 like Vooruit are unique in their kind.

Ghent has two castles, Gravensteen and Gerard de duivelsteen. Near Gravensteen you'll find very nice neighbourhood called Patershol. It has a sphere of small medieval town.

It also has a Museum of Modern Art, named S.M.A.K. (Stedelijk Museum voor Actuele Kunst)
