Once a well kept secret but now blossoming as a fashionable short break destination, Ghent is a vibrant university city with over 300 restaurants and a nightlife to match. At its heart is the well preserved gothic centre, where you can step back in time to a period when Ghent was a wealthy medieval city, home to proud merchants and powerful counts and kings.

Atmospheric and beautifully illuminated at night, the Three Towers of Ghent and the crusaders Castle of the Counts dominate the skyline making the scenery even more impressive. Ghent receives fewer visitors than Bruges but has equally pretty medieval architecture and its real Flemish residents are immensely proud of their buzzing university town. Ghent is a city well pleased with itself, past and present and well worth your time to visit with your family or friends. one of the highlights is the yearly Fester's Festival that attracts thousands of people, with a lively celebration and lots of fun for all generations.
