Graslei and Korenlei
In the neighbourhood
A cosy, picturesque neighbourhood in the shadow of the Castle of the Counts, with a pattern of streets that has been the same since mediaeval times.
Nowhere else can you see so many marvellous buildings in one glance as from St Michael’s Bridge. The monumental bridge can itself be better admired from the Graslei.
The Van Eyck brothers painted this unique altarpiece in 1432. It is the highlight of the Flemish Primitives and a milestone in art history.
