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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Ghent: Bruges (Burg Square, The Markt, &more) and Menin Gate Memorial (in Ieper (Ypres)). And it doesn't end there: explore the historical opulence of Gravensteen, make a trip to Korenmarkt, get to know the fascinating history of Ghent City Center, and enjoy breathtaking views from Belfry and Cloth Hall (Belfort en Lakenhalle).

To find more things to do, where to stay, maps, and tourist information, read our Ghent tour planning website.
