Belgium's port city of Ghent, self-described as the city of trust and love, sits at the confluence of the Scheldt and Lys rivers. The university town is a cultural hub that’s part artistic quarter and part historic center. The pedestrianized city center is a showcase of medieval architecture, including the fairy-tale-like 12th-century Gravensteen castle. For visitors who want to get to the heart of the city’s personality, take the Sorry, Not Sorry walking tour of Ghent’s graffiti. CDC information for travelers. Hours/availability may have changed.

1.Ghent Belfry

Ghent Belfry

The Ghent Belfry is the city’s symbol of independence. Built in 1313, it originally held the municipal privileges (similar to a town’s charter) in a secret room. The dragon symbol on the tower is symbolic of guarding the privileges. A single alarm bell, installed in 1325, became an hourly bell 50 years later. By 1442, the belfry served as the city’s watchtower, where trumpeters and bell ringers would warn of imminent danger – usually fire. Over time, more bells were added until a 54-bell carillon was completed in 1993. The belfry was placed on the World Heritage List in 1999. Visitors may choose self-guided tours or join a single daily guided tour.

Saint Michael’s Church is a Roman Catholic Church that was built around 1440 and is dedicated to the Archangel Michael. It was originally designed to stand at a soaring height of 439 feet, but unfortunately it was only built to 78 feet with the unfinished tower receiving a closed roof in 1828. Its destiny changed due to religious conflicts, looting, and destruction between 1566 and 1579. Between 1623 and 1659, architect Lieven Cruyl rebuilt the church, creating a rich neo-Gothic interior featuring a pulpit and an altar. It is decorated with neoclassic and Rococo statues, and multiple baroque and 18th-century paintings, including the iconic Christ Dying on the Cross by Anthony Van Dyck.
