      Mark Hellemans recommended Graslei & Korenlei
      Two streets, one on each side of the water in between. An incredible amount of great looking old houses. This must be one of the most amazing sights of Belgium, and Ghent in particular. Take you time ... read more
      to look around, and then do it a second time with binoculars. Or sit down on the terrace of the many bars & restaurants and enjoy the view

      A real medieval castle still clearly showing its primal defense function. Don't expect a fancy interior. Instead you get a few rooms with armor, torture instruments and history. It is not stuffed with ... read more

      the Mystic Lamb) by Hubert and Jan Van Eyck. I can look at this painting for hours, even if that is unpractical due to the crowded situation in the small room where it is displayed
