From one of the city’s bridges, one can see the postcard panorama of these three towers: the Belfry of Ghent, the steeples of the St. Nicolas church and Saint Bavo’s cathedral. Through winding alleys and cobbled streets with numerous restaurants we will visit the Castle of the Counts, an imposing fortress that used to be the residence of the count of Flanders. Later on it was used as a courthouse, a jail and even a textile factory. We’ll show you ‘Dulle Griet’ (Mad Maggie), a 15th century cast iron cannon, weighing more than twelve tons.
