Graslei – The beating heart of Ghent

The beauty of Ghent partly lies in the old houses along the water. I believe the charm of the city is centered around the Graslei. Every single time I pass by walking I need to stop for a little moment and admire the romantic sight. So glad I’m living here! Perhaps it sounds a bit corny but believe me, you’ll know how it feels once you have experienced it!

In summer time, this is the place to be for students to have a drink or for the working crowd to watch the evening sun while enjoying an ice cream and check out the people passing by.

In winter time it is simply beautiful to see the lights of the many restaurants and bars lighting the water – it really brings the city center alive. This central meeting point is the perfect operating base for all the different activities Ghent has to offer: shopping, eating, drinking, museums…

So please, take a moment to enjoy this beautiful view of Ghent. Having seen it for so many times, I am still not tired of it!
