  • Do not go up to plane just for this. There is nothing to do. At most take tram 4 line by the way see the University and the neighborhood of beguinnage, that'll be a nicer ballad. As the place to be is not put into value, the tram stop is in front of the building!

  • ANCIENT gate of the city that reminded us to medieval times, does not offer too much touristic interest

  • I am staying in a nice flat for a few days only steps from the Rabot (i can easily see it from my window). My husband and I went a few times to the structure, but there's no information in French or E...  more »

  • northern most towered gateway of the ancient wall around gent. Was a water gate where barges and boats bring goods into Gent paid their tolls. Waterway ends there so take the boat tour to visit. nothing else to see really.
  • It's a great place to draw or do parkour, lots of nice perspectives and spots
  • Super location
  • Historic building, formerly a prison, nice monument which many Gentenaar and tourist in turmoil brings!!!! With the death of the last Rabothouder the Municipal Council decided the Rabot to maim. The sluiswachters House and both stairwells were demolished. A new facade on city side was copied from the old one. In 1872 was the sweet behind the Rabot muted for the construction of the ring railway. (the former Rabotstation). About 1890 the Rabot again was wronged and the ground floor was originally (by embankment of the ground level) ondergedolven. The State protected monument since 1936 there, shameful ... Looking at a street scene, characterized by the continued presence of traffic, surrounded by large-scale elements, another fateful decision. The "three new corporate dwellings of Bowater Philips" in no way integrated, displace it a void construction design, a worthless historical element. But no. The district Center Rabot was recognized as revaluation area and there they are right? In the meantime the "revalued" monument quietly refreshed, glazed Windows and finished because the mild Knights do not want a pigeon loft. The fiere Rabot in the deterrence of a never audience that turned up enemy? Times change ... long live the history!!!!
