A supergun built in the 15th century, Dulle Griet sits near Friday Market Square in Ghent's Old Town. The city used the massive weapon in the siege of Oudenaarde, but it was hauled away by retreating defenders. The cannon was returned in 1578 and is now on display outside for you to inspect. Constructed of 32 longitudinal bars and 61 rings of iron, it was a blacksmith's crowning achievement in 1452. To find out how to plan a trip to Ghent, use our trip itinerary maker.

  • It is an amazing place with original Belgium beers! You should try the following challenge:You give one of your shoe and it is kept on a basket until you drink 1,2 liters of beer in order to take your shoe back! AWESOME!
  • Awesome!!! Great beer selection with over 500 beers. Bartenders have great knowledge on the beers they sell. If your a heavy drinker you'll love it, they also sell beer in 1.2l glasses.
