Join me in a walk through the city center of Ghent and discover some interesting spots. We’ll navigate our way through interesting buildings – old and young – as Saint Bavo’s cathedral that houses the Ghent Altarpiece, the belfry with it’s dragon, the old harbor that dates from the middle ages and many more… We’ll pass through a gigantic tradition of the ‘Burgundian way of life’ with a lot of Flemish guilty pleasures such as our variety beers, chocolate and of course the Belgian waffles!
Our passion for history, traveling & exploring the world has led Wim to start his own venture -"Guide in Ghent". I offer some unique tours to explore local culture, history, tradition and people of the Flemish city Ghent. In this experience i will help you to get to know the local history and its people.
We'll taste and discover the famous Belgian chocolate.
We’ll visit Saint Bavo’s cathedral with 'The Ghent Altarpiece' from the 15th century. At the feet of the belfry we’ll talk about dragons and city rights. Further on I’ll take you to the Graslei: a romantic spot with a century-old story. We’ll finish at the Gravensteen, a picturesque castle that dates from the ninth century! During this walk, we take a break at one of the many chocolate stores in the city to taste the famous Belgian chocolate...
