St Bavo's Abbey
In the neighbourhood
No need to leave Ghent to feel like a God in the south of France.
Originally a 14th-century castle, the restored Hof van Rijhove illustrates the development of seven centuries of domestic culture in an authentic Ghent mansion.
Cosy up on the bench along the Lys and enjoy the marvellous view of the Great Butchers’ Hall and the renovated Old Fish Market.
