A supergun built in the 15th century, Dulle Griet sits near Friday Market Square in Ghent's Old Town. The city used the massive weapon in the siege of Oudenaarde, but it was hauled away by retreating defenders. The cannon was returned in 1578 and is now on display outside for you to inspect. Constructed of 32 longitudinal bars and 61 rings of iron, it was a blacksmith's crowning achievement in 1452. To find out how to plan a trip to Ghent, use our trip itinerary maker.

  • This bar is awesome if you like beers. They have a wide selection of them, but I would recommend the local beer after which the bar is named. There's also a nice beer challenge inside which is great fun. You order this tall glass full of draft beer, but your shoe is collateral. So wear comfortable ones. Just go experience it.
  • This is one of the classics of Gent. In the heart of the city it sits and it shall request one of your shoes if you order the big glass of beer they serve (1.2 lites of fine taste beer). They place the shoe in a basket and you receive it back when you return the special glass. Nice experience, local vibe, lots of options and plenty of space. Enjoy
