Surroundings Ghent

The historic centre of the city of Ghent offers much to see, and is dominated by a imposing array of towers that can be admired from the Saint Michiels Bridge: the Church of Saint Nicholas, the Belfort tower with its clock tower and Saint Bavo’s Cathedral which contains the world famous painting, ” The Adoration of the Mystic Lamb” by Jan van Eyck.

The Middle Ages have survived in many places: the old harbour with the guild houses on the Graslei and the Korenlei is just one example of the many delightful sights that Ghent has to offer.

Ghent can also meet all your needs for shopping, fine food and enjoyable excursions.
