In the neighbourhood


Gent Watertoerist
An historic round-trip, a relaxing glass on the champagne boat or ebullient ambiance on the party boat, everything is possible.
Gent Belfort
Above the Ghent skyline towers the Old Belfry, lonely and grey, an iconic symbol of the past.
Museum Dr.Guislain Gent
A museum in Belgium’s oldest psychiatric hospital, built in 1857: you’d be crazy not to pay it a visit.
