In the neighbourhood
Ask ten inhabitants of Ghent what the most beautiful place in their city is and nine will answer 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.
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.
