Overview

A medieval highlight in the low countries

Ghent, a typical flemish city

Dubbed the Manhattan of the Middle Ages because of its cloth-trading wealth, Ghent still thrives as a university town with cobbled streets and winding canals. Kick back by the water with a fruity Belgian beer and admire the Gothic spires of Saint-Bavo Cathedral.

About Benelux

Don’t hesitate to enter the cathedral as inside, you will have the chance to admire the sumptuous masterpiece "The Adoration of the Mystic Lamb", painted by the world-famous Van Eyck brothers.

The Counts Castle, from 1180, was built in the centre of the town in order to show the counts power. Climb up to the top of its keep to appreciate an amazing view onto the town. Take a walk along the "Graslei" (grass embankment), the place-to-be in Ghent, where the historic houses are the symbols of an important economic development in the past.

Don’t leave without enjoying the atmosphere of Ghent at night when it lights up from everywhere.
