An evening walking tour in Ghent during which you will discover the most important sightseeing places, the red light district and the Belgian beer and food culture.
The group is met by our guide at the Square ‘Zuid’. As quite a lot of European cities Ghent can also boast about its “red light district”. Our guide leads us for two hours through the charmingly lit streets of the historical center. Starting point is “het Zuid”, within a stone’s throw of the notorious “Glazen straatje” , officially known as the “Pieter Vanderdonckt passage”. But this evening walk has much more to offer than barely the world’s oldest profession. Lots of other places worth seeing are St Bavo’s cathedral (exterior) , the belfry, the St Nicolas church, the City Hall, the Friday Market Square. We end our walking tour at the Graslei and the Korenlei
Next we organise a transfer by boat towards the Gruut brewery. An aperitif is served on board (glass of cava). In this unique city brewery beer isn’t brewed with hops but with “gruut”, a mixture of herbs and spices . A great taste, certainly when the beer is being served with a touch of eroticism. Just enough not to miss the explanation about the brewing process and the tasting of the first beer ( the Gruut Wit). After tasting 3 beers we walk towards the restaurant where dinner is served (3 course menu, drinks not included)
