Create an itinerary including Graslei and Korenlei
At Graslei and Korenlei, watch the perfectly preserved facades of medieval port houses reflected in the river. Nestled in the prospering heart of the inner city along the banks of the old port, the two streets were named after the goods--herbs, vegetables, and wheat--that were once stored in this area. To truly experience Ghent, sit on the cobblestones on either side of the water and soak up the atmosphere watching tour boats passing and people go by. If you get thirsty, check out one of the many cafe terraces. Work out when and for how long to visit Graslei and Korenlei and other Ghent attractions using our handy Ghent sightseeing planner.

  • No doubt the nicest and historic/medieval part of Ghent, with lots of bars and restaurants to sit and enjoy the views! Have a wander and then enjoy a beer or coffee and a waffle!

  • I spent an evening walking around here. Beautiful place. A lot of restaurants I mean a lot. 😁 Boat ride in the canal will help make your day memorable. 👍🏻
  • Impressive riverbank with transitional dutch architectures. Enjoyed sitting at the river bank watching the tourist boats, Kayaking and rowing boats.
