It is hard to pick something special in Gent as there are so many spectacular sights to impress us. Just don't miss anything.

The architecture was interesting, but typical of so many other buildings in Europe. Was a little disappointed to find it was not open to the public. It might have been interesting inside. On to the next!

Beautiful architecture and a must see at least from outside if you are in ghent. You will pass through this building while you are visiting the major attractions of Ghent. And the feel of the building in the night flooded with yellow light is awesome.

A fabulous historic building right in the centre of Ghent with all of the major attractions within walking distance. Many cafes and restaurants are around this area. Well worth seeing

This building was built over many years starting in renaissance style with extremely intricate artwork and design and being finished in a totally different style.

On the itinerary of the walking tour of Ghent city centre, impressive externally but sadly lacking in information display. Would greatly benefit from something similar to the UK Blue Plaque system

Great Gothic architecture but nothing to say what it was or any history plaque. Imposing in the rain and imagine it would be excellent lit up at night.
