• Ghent


Ghent doesn't ooze with cobbles and charm; this is a living, thriving city, with an urban grittiness, quirky shops, and a thriving restaurant and nightlife scene. Visitors enjoy exploring its historic quarter, ogling the Van Eyck altarpiece in its massive cathedral, touring its impressive art and design museums, strolling its picturesque embankments, basking in its finely decorated historic gables, and prowling its newly revitalized Patershol restaurant quarter.
