#1 of 71 Sights & Landmarks in Ghent
The city centre of Ghent is without any doubt the most wonderful in Belgium: very accessible, a perfect mix of shops and touristic attractions, great sights and wonderfull museas.
... more nice stuff to see in Bruges but the nice stuff in Ghent is nicer!! Just to walk along the canals or just sit and chill with a snack or beverage while admiring the fantastic buildings and views is a must-do.

There are peaceful canals flowing by, views of the lovely cathedral and other churches, boat trips to be taken, and a variety of great restaurants from which to watch the world go by.
Surrounded by historic buildings, some dating back to 13th Century, this was a fascinating and interesting spot to stroll around and take in the sights and sounds.

We came to Ghent for the Christmas markets but found visiting the castle a great distraction and a lot of fun ... Walking up the steep steps to the top was worth it as the view over the city was spectacular!!!

The view from the top is most fascinating as you can see the beauty of Ghent, if you had a proper guide you can see the starting point of Ghent, Portus Ganda from the tower.

Saint Nicholas' Church is built in the local Gothic style the beginning of 13th century, and is one of the oldest landmarks in Ghent.
This 13th-century church of Gothic construction is a lovely structure and is worth the time to appreciate if you have an interest in this type of site at all.

Fantastic views from the belfry!
#10 of 71 Sights & Landmarks in Ghent
There are terrific views all around this plaza of the churches and old Post Office, but if you can, a stay in the The Post is a must.
There are also several landmarks within a 5 minute walking distance!

The stadium gives a very open view and very bright and also try and catch a match of A.A Gent in their home stadium.
Really nice football venue, no alcohol on the night but they views I had were unrestricted.

It is hard to pick something special in Gent as there are so many spectacular sights to impress us.

The highlight was going into the church, where the tour goes up the back of the organ and you get an awesome view of the church from a balcony.
#15 of 71 Sights & Landmarks in Ghent
A nice place to wander by a compact area full of sites from modern builds to old historical sites and alfresco cafes.
Here you the majority of the historic Ghent landmarks, as well as numerous eateries to sit outside and enjoy the views.

Vooruit is a reference landmark in Ghent, not only for its incredibly beautiful architecture and history but also for all the arts events taking place and have taken place over its history.
#17 of 71 Sights & Landmarks in Ghent
Quite a distance from the center of town but several trams right in front to take one into the center for the beautiful sights.

Beautiful historical view
#19 of 71 Sights & Landmarks in Ghent
The acoustics are good, but the seating space is arranged in a slight horseshoe, so views of the stage are very restricted in some areas, such as the back rows of the loges and the sides of the upper balcony.
Our €26 seats got us high up a steep wall of balconies in a (relative to ROH or The Colosseum) small theatre but a good view (not for those with vertigo though!) seats comfortable.

The house is opposite the Belfry and an alternative view can be had from its upper levels.

Always changing - if possible visit several days or weeks apart, the view is always changing.
Those who don't like grafitti don't have to view it, and those that do can become saturated in it.
