Patershol, Ghent

(460+ reviews on the web)
Neighborhood
Wander down the medieval streets of Patershol, a historical district within the city. Previously considered a dangerous neighborhood, this area has now become one of the most desirable places to live, popular among tourists for its cozy cafes and restaurants. It is blocked off to cars, which adds to its charm. Check online for info on any events in the area, as there are often festivals in the squares with face-painting, singing, and flea markets. Put Patershol on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Ghent trip itinerary builder.
