Ghent melds the fairy tale-like beauty of Bruges with its stunning Flemish architecture, while at the same time supporting a vibrant cafe and bar scene.
Start off your visit on the 15th (Sat): don't miss a visit to Ghent City Center, explore the galleries of Gravensteen Castle, sample the tasty concoctions at Huisbrouwerij De Halve Maan, then get to know the fascinating history of Walplein, and finally don't miss a visit to The Markt. On the next day, take in the spiritual surroundings of Basilica of the Holy Blood, then take in panoramic vistas at Belfry of Bruges, then steep yourself in history at Historic Centre of Brugge, and finally take in the waterfront at Graslei and Korenlei.
