Attractions near to Gravensteen Castle
The UNESCO protected belfry is one of the city's three towers. It has a dragon on top. The hall next to it was used for clothes trade.
Stop by at this solid bridge to enjoy an amazing view of Ghent. This is one of the most photographed sceneries.
The medieval houses along the canal, the old port and a wide promenade: this is the focal point of Ghent, the very heart of the city.
The recently restored Gothic church made of local greystone was the most important dominant and guardpost until the belfry was built.
An interesting fusion of Gothic and Renaissance building styles. Don't forget to explore the interior.
The heart of the city is a gem to behold: historical houses, lively pedestrian streets and countless little details. Just amazing!
Waterfront promenade leading through the historical parts of the city. Just walk along the canal and enjoy the spectacular scenery.
Dedicated to the patron saint of Ghent, the cathedral is a real Gothic gem that adorns the city. Do not miss out the legendary altarpiece!
The name says it all – this alley is a popular target for young graffiti artists. The street never stays the same for long.
Rather peculiar architectural sight connecting together a medley of styles. Magnificent complex worth stopping by.
