St Michael's Bridge
In the neighbourhood
Above the Ghent skyline towers the Old Belfry, lonely and grey, an iconic symbol of the past.
The Van Eyck brothers painted this unique altarpiece in 1432. It is the highlight of the Flemish Primitives and a milestone in art history.
A cosy, picturesque neighbourhood in the shadow of the Castle of the Counts, with a pattern of streets that has been the same since mediaeval times.
