Bringing you the very best of Belgium – strap in for the ride!

Ghent

A gorgeous city where you can sit and have lunch while overlooking a medieval castle in the middle of town. At night, the castle is beautifully lit, and you can get a great view from across the water that surrounds the other side of it.

Yes, there’s an actual castle in the middle of town, and on the other side is a square where you can eat outside

Ghent, like Bruges, also has water running through many parts of the city.

I loved that it seemed like two cities in one, all mixed together. One one side of the coin, Ghent is a historic city with castles and rivers all over the place, primarily geared towards leisure time. On the other side of the coin, Ghent is like a normal, but exceptionally beautiful and cosmopolitan city, with commuters on street cars, tourists visiting large art galleries, several universities and multiple parks and town squares.

It’s a very livable city that pulls you in and makes you never want to leave.
