The best things to do in Ghent

Ghent is a beautiful, special city. It is a medieval harbor full of terraces, historic buildings, and romantic canals, where you can see a stunning display of Romanesque, Gothic, and Renaissance architecture. Taking a stroll there will help you learn more about the heart of this city, making it one of the most popular Ghent activities.

We can continue our visit to the Ghent Castle, the former residence of the counts of Flanders. It was used until the fourteenth century as a fortress and is currently one of the essential things to see in Ghent for tourists. Other important Ghent attractions include the cathedral with its baroque pulpit and eighteenth century paintings, most notably "The Adoration of the Mystic Lamb" by Van Eyck. 

Those looking for religious things to do in Ghent will find the Church of St. Nicholas, the second most beautiful church in the city, near the cathedral. And at its foot you'll find the Korenmarkt, another of the popular attractions in Ghent, atmospheric and bustling both day and night. Climbing Belfort, a bell tower of 91 meters, built in the 14th century, should rank high on your list of what to do in Ghent. From its vantage point you'll be able to see across the city, giving you the perfect view of even more places to go and stuff to do in Ghent.
