The Old Fish Market is located at the confluence of the Lieve canal and the river Lys. Fishmongers sold their goods here from the late Middle Ages until the 1960s. It’s one of Ghent’s oldest markets and was originally located on Groentenmarkt square, but it moved to Sint-Veerleplein square at the end of the 17th century.

Opposite the Castle of the Counts lies the monumental gateway to the Old Fish Market, where Neptune keeps watch over the Scheldt (male) and the Lys (female).

The entirely renovated complex houses, among others, the Visit Gent Office. You can find all sorts of information here!
