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.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Gravensteen and Choco-Story - The Chocolate Museum. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Groeningemuseum and Belfry of Bruges. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Ghent: Bruges (Basilica of the Holy Blood, The Bottle Shop, &more), Memorial Museum Passchendaele 1917 (in Zonnebeke) and Ieper (Ypres) (Menin Gate Memorial & In Flanders Fields Museum). There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Saint Bavo's Cathedral, take in the views from St Michael's Bridge, examine the collection at STAM Ghent City Museum, and explore the world behind art at Museum Voor Schone Kunsten.
