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.

  • Nice get lost in one of the oldest areas of Ghent, where you can visit an exhibition in the caemersklooster. Can you satisfy the hunger in one of the many dining options. You can fully relax in the Wellness Center aqua azul. The "patershol" is a place of calm located in the triangle gravensteen. oudburg, vrijdagsmarkt.
