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 on the sunny days, on the korenlei you have a beautiful background of the city center and houses. For the rest of the year it's okay to go and walk!

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 !

Fabulous to explore along the canals of central Gent, where day or night, rain or shine there is so much to do.
Shops, cafe's, restaurant's this is the place to be in Gent.
Night time take a walk around the canals as this area is floodlight and with patience provides fantastic photo opportunity.
Great place to hang out when watching the world go by, whilst sipping the perfect and strong Belgian beers.

Very short walking area where people hang out. Nothing overly special. Normally, the opposite side of the canal would look nice, but many of the buildings were covered in scaffolding.
