  • A place that is is away from the Center. You can go by tram. The place is interesting because it was the first psychiatric hospital and really one can feel that the history of Psychiatry. For viewing as many medical treatments that are considered certain in time are nonsense. It is interesting to see how to change the approach to the mentally ill incorporating them into a treatment more integral.

  • Everytime I visit the museum, I am struck by the beauty of the building. The exhibitions are interesting-sometimes what bizarre and occasionally brilliant. There is also a cafe where you can drink. Within not so fascinating, but when the weather is nice, there are tables for the lawn and it is delicious. A real winner.

Where to stay in Ghent

One of Belgium's main cities, Ghent offers a good variety of places to stay. Because of its proximity to the capital city of Brussels and the city of Bruges, Ghent has fewer options than one might expect for a city of its size. Locals recommend booking a room in advance. The city has options for travelers on any budget, from inexpensive hostels to pricier hotels, with most visitors choosing to stay within the historical center. Prices drop slightly as you move away from the Old Town.
