Head for one of the underground parkings, Sint Michiels, Vrijdagsmarkt, Reep or Ramen. Those are all within walking distance to the historic city center.

Must sees are the Castle of the Counts and the St Baafs cathedral. Castle could take an hour if you want to visit the inside and Cathedral can be done in about 30 minutes.
