St Michael's Bridge
In the neighbourhood
Ghent has something from every period of history and that also applies to the STAM - Ghent City museum: the 14th-century abbey, the 17th-century monastery and the new 21st-century development together form the Ghent City museum.
Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday morning, the Bij Sint-Jacobs square plays host to a flea market, surrounded by countless bric-a-brac shops.
Above the Ghent skyline towers the Old Belfry, lonely and grey, an iconic symbol of the past.
