Called "the new Graslei" by Ghentians. Less busy than the actual Gras- or Korenlei but as cosy as. Enjoy a sunset here next to the water, take a study break or read a book in the grass.

I never bored to walk and sit here, and enjoy the view.

Pleasant surprise walking through the streets of downtown, I found myself on the edge of one of these beautiful channels. A stroll on the boardwalk enjoying a nice warm sunny day, people sitting on benches or chairs of the bars, admiring this beautiful show. One of the most beautiful sights.

it is new installed and very interesting for water-loving people - but for a 'hystoric' tourist it is not worth the steps to go thereto

Here is where the rivers Schelde and Leie come together. Here is where it all started. The Marina is a nice place to while away an hour or so. To the left, on the other side of the water, there is a wooden platform. From there the view on the Marina is wonderful. And ist's the perfect place to play... More

This is one of my favourite spots in ghent. Living just around the corner, this place is fabulous when the sun has set early evening. Then the lights of the innerharbor light the whole place. very beautiful when there are no clouds. Some point of criticism... it can be very windy over there.

No better place in the center of Ghent for a quick sun tan. While Graslei and Korenlei are overcrowded on hot days and suffer from garbage and broken bottles, the lowered quays of this marina are ideal for sunbathing. If you prefer lying in the grass, the park next to the swimming pool is another option. The only thing missing... More
