Patershol, Ghent

(4.2/5 based on 440+ 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.

  • Ribs restaurant with known ' p ' with herb butter (lookbom). Places in large group or where some noise is desired; BV Bachelorette. Skewer is within the limited range. More for mass consumption. Not for high quality ribs. Nice decorated. Not suitable if you want fine cuisine.

  • This neighborhood is the founding of Ghent. Maintains its cobbled streets and houses of origin, on the day is very quiet and overnight turns on the hospitality industry.

  • If you wanna eat a lot for a good price, this is the place! Good atmosphere, good food, good drink and good price.
