  • Dulle Griet is a symbol for Ghent. Bother to see but, above all, to know that they actually never served because of ball balls too heavy bleaching.

  • This big red gun is not indicated in the streets and no information is present beside. However it is present in a major Street and impression by its size.

  • The story behind should be more interesting than the sight of this 12-ton canon. Anyway, it was easy to locate near the market square. Just took a picture and proceed to other spots of the city centre...  more »

Where to stay in Ghent

One of Belgium's main cities, Ghent offers a good variety of places to stay. Because of its proximity to the capital city of Brussels and the city of Bruges, Ghent has fewer options than one might expect for a city of its size. Locals recommend booking a room in advance. The city has options for travelers on any budget, from inexpensive hostels to pricier hotels, with most visitors choosing to stay within the historical center. Prices drop slightly as you move away from the Old Town.
