Patershol, Ghent
(4.3/5 based on 420+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Get lost in the maze of alleys to the quaint charm is worth! Even more impressive at night! The area is full of bars and restaurants atypical to the mysterious facades.

  • We liked lose us randomly cobbled alleys. The children are said to have the feeling of being in Harry Potter. It's full of charm and it is well worth the tourist side of the lily.

  • Just like its big brother in t Center this is the best ribs restaurant in the world. Also, don't forget weather here not the delicious maple sauce. The herb butter for the p of the pel is not for sensitive intestines!!!
