About 🔎

Welcome to the historical city of Ghent, my hometown! Let me show you the highlights, including a 12th-century castle with moat and a schizophrenic city hall, but also some hidden gems such as a graffiti alley and the birthplace of an emperor. For about two hours, you'll learn more about the long and sometimes surprising history of this city which once was the 2nd most populated in Western Europe.
