Guildhalls along a small canal make Ghent City Center a favorite stopping place for tourists. The city isn't included in many guided tours of Belgium and maintains the feel of a local, undiscovered destination. In the center you have your choice of restaurants and bars with views of stunning architecture and the river.

Consider a walking tour through the narrow streets and across the canal bridges to gain a fuller appreciation of this historic center.
