Hof van Rijhove
Numerous renowned painters, sculptors and writers went to their final resting place on this 19 metre-high burial mound.
You are on historic ground here. In the 7th century, Amandus van Gent founded St Bavo’s Abbey here in an attempt to convert the inhabitants of this city of Ganda.
This may surprise many locals, but the city boasts a beautiful nature reserve: Bourgoyen-Ossemeersen is a 230-hectare flood area that provides a vital migratory winter habitat for hundreds of species of birds.
