Belfort Van Gent - Review

Look up at the very top of this bell tower and you’ll see a dragon. That dragon keeps watch over Ghent and guards the municipal privileges of Ghent that are kept in the secrecy room. As far as the city’s identity goes, the 91 metre tall Belfry is probably the most important building in the city. From 1442 to 1869, the men of Ghent kept a shapr look out from the top for invaders and fires the deadliest threats. The bell itself, called Roland (which has actually been made a character in the city’s anthem), has been chiming out the hour in 1378. Declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1999, the building also houses the Lakenhalle, or Cloth Hall the centre of the fabric trade that brought such wealth to the city in the Middle Ages. So you’ve got great views from the top, a movie explaining the making of the bells and an insight into the city economy. It’s good value!

Belfort Van Gent, Ghent Reviews

  • Amazing. Must see for Ghent. My son wanted to go again (so we did!). There’s an elevator too, so good for older people too (though you still have to climb a few steps).

  • Fun, quick site to visit. You can climb up the stairs to the each level and the top or climb 55 stairs to the first level and then take the elevator to each level. Different small exhibits per level. Panoramic views of beautiful Ghent for the top.

  • Definitely worth a visit! Such a COOL view of Gent from high above - A great stairway to experience it and even an elevator for tired legs!

  • It has a nice view but nothing else interesting to see inside, so the price is a bit big because the only interesting part is the view from above. I would recommend this place, it’s nice and it takes no longer than 25-30 minutes to visit. It has elevator.

  • Beautiful, much restaurants next to it. So if you are hungry after going to the Belfort, you can go get a snack. Very much art work in it and very interesting.
