Itinerary

Description of the activity

Ghent is a postcard perfect stop on any tour of Europe. The good news is that Ghent is small enough to be discovered by foot but big enough to stay vibrant. The perfect mix between cosmopolitanism and the quiet atmosphere of a provincial town. In this tour, you will discover the history of one of the most beautiful towns in Belgium, admire the outstanding charm of its quays, churches and squares. Once a beacon of richness in Northern Europe, due to its textile trade industry with deepest roots into the Middle Ages. Admire the postcard panorama of the three towers: the belfry and the steeples of St. Nicolas church and St Bavo’s cathedral. The impressive Belfry and cloth hall of St Nicolas church are both on UNESCO’s World Heritage list, The sacred structure of St Bavo’s Cathedral is home to late-medieval treasures like the “The Adoration of the Mystic Lamb” (1432) by the van Eyck brothers, a milestone in art history. See the City hall, with its mixture from flamboyant Gothic to Renaissance styles. Don’t miss the Dulle Griet (Evil woman), a 15th century cast iron cannon, weighing more than twelve tons. Not only will you learn about its ups and downs, but also its legends, about cultural and architectural style and today’s everyday life.
