Ghent melds the fairy tale-like beauty of Bruges with its stunning Flemish architecture, while at the same time supporting a vibrant cafe and bar scene.
You'll explore and learn at Herge Museum and Hooge Crater Museum. St. Nicholas' Cathedral and Abbaye de Villers will appeal to history buffs. Change things up with these side-trips from Ghent: Bruges (Sint-Walburgakerk, The Old Chocolate House, &more), Antwerp (Museum Plantin-Moretus, Cogels Osylei, &more) and Leuven (Groot Begijnhof & Town Hall (Stadhuis)). There's still lots to do: stroll the grounds of St Symphorien Military Cemetery, enjoy the sand and surf at De Panne Beach, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Collegiale Sainte-Waudru, and pause for some serene contemplation at Saint George's Memorial Church.

To find where to stay, reviews, maps, and other tourist information, use the Ghent trip planner.

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major aiports are Brussels Airport, Antwerp International Airport (Deurne), Ostend-Bruges International Airport and Brussels South Charleroi Airport. In November, plan for daily highs up to 12°C, and evening lows to 5°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 20th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
