Discover the beautiful Ghent!

If you're looking for a unique and unforgettable travel experience, you should consider visiting Ghent, a charming city in Belgium that offers a perfect blend of history, culture, and modernity. Ghent has become increasingly popular among tourists in recent years, and for good reason.


One of the best ways to experience Ghent's rich history is to stay in one of its historic hotels. These hotels have been around for centuries and offer a glimpse into the city's past. You can take a step back in time and feel like royalty as you walk through the halls and sleep in the same rooms as nobles and royals from centuries ago.


But there's more to Ghent than just its historic hotels. The city has a vibrant food scene with plenty of authentic cuisines to try. You can taste traditional Belgian dishes such as moules-frites (mussels and fries) and stoofvlees (beef stew) or try international cuisine at one of the many restaurants in the city. Ghent also has a thriving craft beer scene, so be sure to sample some of the local brews. 

Boat Tour

Another unique experience you can have in Ghent is driving a boat on the beautiful river that runs through the city. You can rent a boat or take a tour and explore the canals, taking in the stunning architecture and scenery along the way. Another cool summer activity for a group is to rent kayaks and explore the city at your own pace in smaller groups. It's a peaceful and relaxing way to see the city from a different perspective. 


Another easy way to see all the magical buildings or hidden spots in Ghent is to just walk through the small, cozy streets. Guide yourself through monuments such as the remarkable Belfort, standing tall as a symbol of Ghent's rich history, where you can enjoy panoramical views which will definitely take your breath away!
