Description

Depart Brussels and journey to the port city of Ghent, located at the scenic confluence of the Leie and Scheldt rivers. Start your tour of the historic city at Saint Bavo Cathedral and admire the spectacular Gothic church and Baroque ornamentations. Step into the marble choir and private chapels, appreciate the painting of “Saint Bavo Enters the Convent at Ghent” by Rubens and the beauty of the Rococo pulpit. Look at the stunning frescoes of the Romanesque crypt. Then, opt to visit the altarpiece of 'The Adoration of the Mystic Lamb' by the Van Eyck bothers and admire one of the most important works of art from the Middle Ages for a small extra fee. Go to City Hall to see its extraordinary mix of Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque architecture. Continue to Market Hall to look at the Belfort tower and covered market. Marvel at the nearby churches of Saint Nicholas, Saint James and Saint Michael, serving as reminders of Ghent’s medieval past. Proceed to the old port of Graslei for beautiful views of the River Leie and the old guildhalls. Then, head to the medieval castle of Gravensteen, where the counts of Flanders used to live. Explore the picturesque district of Patershol and see charming buildings of brick facades where restaurants and cafes offer the best of the Flemish cuisine. Go to the 15th-century Great Butchers' Hall to discover one of Europe's oldest meat markets. Enjoy some free time to visit the museums or eat and shop at leisure before your return trip to Brussels at 18:30.
