Ghent Walking Tour with Lunch
Our walking tour with lunch in Ghent is unique because we offer a combination of sightseeing in and outside the city centre and a nice lunch. Lunches can be traditional Belgian specialities, but also include some international dishes. We look at the food, but also the history of a place and the interior to make it all equally appealing.
You need to walk at least 5 km.Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this productPass By:
Vrijdagmarkt, Ghent 9000 Belgium
We start this walking tour with lunch in Ghent at the Artevelde statue at Friday Market. This is a historical square with interesting houses and some cool facts. After a brief introduction and information about what to expect, we explore the square and the surrounding streets.
Please note that this itinerary is an example only. If people have a good fitness level (not mandatory though!!) we can cover more ground and therefore also different areas. Also, although it says that we do not make any stops, we do make stops at all landmarks so you can hear the stories told by your guide and to take pictures. We just cannot say how long we will be staying somewhere as that depends on the group. Just so you know :)
When you book, please let us know your fitness level. Pass By:
Gravensteen, Sint-Veerleplein 11, Ghent 9000 Belgium
Following the discovery of Friday Market and surroundings, your guide will take you to another highlight of our city - the Castle of the Counts (Gravensteen). This is a medieval castle with a lot of stories to tell. Your guide will take you to the surrounding areas as well. For instance, Saint Veerle Square, Patershol, Prinsenhof and so on.Pass By:
Graslei and Korenlei, Graslei en Korenleih, Ghent Belgium
From the Castle of the Counts, get yourself to the very heart of Ghent's old town with your guide. Graslei and Korenlei are not to be missed areas. This was the place to be in the Middle Ages, but it is still the most popular area to hang out. Your guide will explain to you its importance and tell you some hidden secrets. Pass By:
Belfry and Cloth Hall (Belfort en Lakenhalle), Emile Braunplein, Ghent 9000 Belgium
The Ghent Belfry is one of the oldest in Belgium and next on your itinerary. As a matter of fact, you will get to see the Saint Nicolas Church, the Belfry and the Saint Bavo Cathedral all at once. These are the 3 Medieval towers of Ghent. Pass By:
Ghent, Ghent, East Flanders Province
We finish the tour with a light lunch at one of the many eateries Ghent offers. We will surprise you by something traditional such as beef stew and fries or perhaps a trendy plant-based meal. In any case, it is will be very delicious!
