Ghent & East Flanders, Belgium

If we had to choose a Belgian city, besides Brussels, to live in, it would be Ghent. This Flemish gem has it all – beautiful medieval architecture, including an imposing castle, tranquil canals, a young, hip university life, a great cultural scene, and excellent food options – including some of the best vegetarian options in Belgium. What more could we ask for?

When people ask us if they should visit Bruges or Ghent, we say Ghent, without hesitation (although really, why not visit both?) We love relaxing along the banks of the Graslei River, enjoying a Belgian beer in Ghent’s Gruut Brewery, admiring the exhibitions in the various galleries, or simply strolling through the city streets. Ghent is a living Flemish city and we love it.
