Ghent melds the fairy tale-like beauty of Bruges with its stunning Flemish architecture, while at the same time supporting a vibrant cafe and bar scene.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Hallerbos - ‘'The Blue Forest’' as well as Ghent City Center. Museum-lovers will appreciate Gravensteen Castle and Red Star Line Museum. Your inner history buff will appreciate Saint Nicholas Church and St. Bavo's Cathedral (Sint-Baafskathedraal). Change things up with these side-trips from Ghent: De Panne Beach (in De Panne), René Magritte Museum (in Jette) and Antwerp (Museum aan de Stroom, Pierre Marcolini, & more). And it doesn't end there: wander the streets of Patershol, admire the masterpieces at Design museum Gent, stroll through Planckendael, and explore the galleries of Belfry and Cloth Hall (Belfort en Lakenhalle).
