Hotels in Ghent
Ghent is in the Flemish part of Belgium. The city has a cosmopolitan atmosphere, with beautiful canal-side architecture and the fresh, modern influence of several thousand university students. You'll enjoy a very warm welcome when you check into a Ghent hotel, and wherever else you go for that matter. The generous hospitality of the city's residents is well known.
Things to do in Ghent
Do as the locals do and hop on a bicycle – you'll see them everywhere. It's easy to get around the city centre on foot, but the main train station is a half-hour walk away. If you're on a bike, steer clear of the tram lines and watch out for cobbles.
Visit the Belfort en Lakenhalle (the belfry and cloth hall). It was built in the 14th century as a monument to the city's independence. From the upper gallery, which is 66 metres above ground, there are panoramic views of Ghent.
STAM is the Ghent city museum. Housed in the 14th-century Bijloke Abbey, it tells the city's story with more than 300 historical artefacts.
Belgian food and drink
When you think of Belgium, you probably think of Belgian chocolate. In Ghent, there are so many choices that you may want to save the chocolate for last.
The city's reputation for delicious, quality food has spread considerably. There's also a strong Turkish population in Ghent, with Turkish restaurants dotted around.
The Flemish influences over the region can be seen in local speciality stoverij. It's meat (traditionally beef) simmered for three hours in dark beer. This tender, marinated meat is served with Belgian fries – better known in the UK as French fries. The name's still a matter of dispute, so stick with ‘Belgian' for as long as you stay in Ghent.
Taking a canal cruise is a popular activity, and it helps you see more of the local area. It's possible to book private tours for just you and your family. Some tour operators run themed cruises, such as the pancake cruise and the shrimp cruise where you can eat as much as you like on the way.
If you stay in Ghent during the winter, don't miss out on the Belgian Christmas Market. It's held in Saint-Bavo Square, with more than 50 stalls. Alongside locally made candles, jewellery and other crafts, you can pick up a mug of warming Gluhwein.
