This area seems to be one of the main meeting places for youngsters and is very attractive with the canal and interesting buildings. Especially appealing at night,

The river is lined with historic buildings and is considered one of the most beautiful parts of Ghent. The best photos of this area are taken from the St. Michael's Bridge. Enjoy a local beer at one of the pubs while viewing the river.

Really pretty area of Ghent. We came here every day on our trip as we liked it so much. Would really recommend, I imagine there is even more of a buzz in the summer when the weather is hot. Lovely to watch the world go...More

Packed with picknicking youngsters on mild summer evenings. The place to see and to be seen. Several beer lounges and restaurants on the quai for the more affluent generation who don't like so sit on cobblestone any more.

Filed with bars, restaurants, hotels and shops it is a good area to stroll, relax near the river, take a boat trip or to have a beer. During sunny days it is filled with people, just relaxing on the water edges, with food and drinks....More

In the summer during '' Gentse Feesten'' there are some concert here so it would be over crowed, loud and the smell of the river is a real deal breaker. But in May and June it is very pleasant to go there and have drink...More

Eventhough Gent does not have a beach, it has the Graslei/Korenlei. The great place to have a cocktail in the sun! See lots of boats and just enjoy the city during the day and night !

You can get a train to Gent and it's a 40 mins walk form the train station or you can get a tram and it will take only 10mins.
