Best places to see in Belgium

Sablon
Popular areas
Enter the “Age of Antiques”. Obscure clock collections and baroque birdcages are hallmarks of a hip home, and Sablon’s infamous antique market brings the bargains. Chocolatiers have created confection paradise on these stroll-able streets. Unwrap world-renowned Godiva and Neuhaus here. But don’t shy away from the smaller, home-grown sweets shops – they’re just as good.
Accommodation near Sablon
Gravensteen
Landmarks
Back in the 13th century, prisoners were kept in the belly of this impressive fortress and subjected to all sorts of unsavoury interrogation methods. To commune with these tortured souls, sign up for a guided tour or take part in a spine-chilling scavenger hunt. Let your inner child (or your actual child) loose in the narrow corridors, imposing towers and winding stairs of this medieval estate.
Accommodation near Gravensteen
Graslei and Korenlei Ghent
Popular areas
Picture this - stately Flemish medieval buildings tucked in a neat row, their reflection swaying on the lapping surface of the Leie river. Meanwhile, spirited groups of friends and googly-eyed couples contribute to the awesome atmosphere of this formerly bustling medieval port. Enjoy the festival vibes during the day or take your sweetie (or bestie) for an after dinner saunter.

Belfry of Bruges
Landmarks
The clock strikes twelve in Market Square. The sound reverberates off statues and shop windows, attracting the attention of passers-by. The sound’s source is the belfry – one of Bruges’ most iconic sites. Built and rebuilt for eight centuries, it’s a stack of Neo-Gothic spirelets, topped by an octagonal clock tower. Clamber up the staircase to see the city in all its glory.
Accommodation near Belfry of Bruges
Avenue Louise
Shopping areas
Smelling of the latest trends, “Louise” is loved by those with a penchant for posh. With a backdrop born from Art Nouveau architecture, people come here for high-end shoes and boutique shops. From bourgeois to bohemian, nary a style is missed. Who said politics and shopping don’t mix? There’re even a few embassies lining this swanky street.
Accommodation near Avenue Louise
Old Fish Market
Monuments
Neptune, the Roman god of water and sea, presides over the entrance in a fitting tribute to a place once teeming with fishmongers. Flanked by Leie and the Scheide, the gods of Ghent’s rivers, these deities now watch over the hubbub. Frolicking holidaymakers should come here to find the tourist office or a well-cooked filet from one of the many restaurants.
