“As charming as the rest of the town ...”
Reviewed 21 December 2011

Some say this is the oldest covered shopping mall of Belgium. 160 years old. But most visitors (lots of sailors) come for checking the local meat market. As a local, it's even impossible to wander at night along the historical facades in the center, without a stranger approaching you and asking with a funny accent for the 'Glazen Straatje'. The Ghent Red Light District is quite cosy and is spread around a few streets between the Vlaanderenstraat and the Brabantdam.
