Best things to see and do in Ghent

While it is Belgium’s third-largest city, Ghent offers tourists an amazing array of perfectly-preserved medieval architecture in a city whose size is large enough to have plenty to see and do without being overly touristy. It is the perfect destination to visit to get to know the Flemish Region of Belgium and is only an hour from the country’s largest cities in case you want to do more free walking tours. Visit Ghent with the help of a local guide who can show you the charming city up close and personal as you savor its culture and cuisine. 

If you are going to visit Ghent, we recommend that you do a free walking tour with a local guide who can help get you oriented with the city from the first day and not miss a thing. Check out the different tours that are posted on the GuruWalk page to find the tour that is most interesting for you and book it for free. Among all the different options, you’ll find must-see landmarks like Saint Bavo’s Cathedral and the Ghent Altarpiece, or the Belfry of Ghent where you can climb Belgium’s largest bell tower to see the amazing views of the city. Check out the amazing art by masters like Bosch or Rubens in Ghent at the Fine Arts Museum, visit Gravensteen Castle, the Great Butcher’s Hall, the UNESCO World Heritage site of the Beguinages of Ghent, the historic Old Town, or just enjoy a boat ride in the beautiful canals. When in Belgium, do as the Belgians and don’t forget to visit the Chocolatiers or sample the famous Belgian beers.
