Holiday homes in East Flanders, for an excursion to the historical Ghent.
Ghent, the capital of East Flanders, is more than worth a visit! This welcoming cultural city with its historical centre offers varied events, museums and places of interest. Think of the Sint-Baaf cathedral (with the famous painting The Adoration of the Lamb'), the Sint-Nicholas church, the Belfort and the Gravensteen. Medieval times are still visible in many old house fronts, for example on the magnificent guild houses on the Gras- and Korenlei. Here too you can take a boat trip on Ghent's waters. Of course you can shop in Ghent and there are restaurants in abundance. The Patershol is great in the evenings. Walk through the narrow streets and find yourself a cosy restaurant.
