About Belfort Van Gent, Ghent

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

user-pics
Google+
  • Narrow staircases and passageways, but worthwhile for the view! Choose between a lift or spiral staircase to reach the top. Slow to get in and the ticket lady wasn't too smiley. €8⃣ entrance fee or €2⃣✳️7⃣0⃣ for under 25s.

  • Beautiful building in the center of Ghent. Absolutely worth visiting. The city organises a lot of activities in the building for very reasonable prices, be sure to check out the website!

  • One of the must visit landmarks in Ghent, which is a small but active city. The lighting at night is definitely more attractive in my opinion as shown in my photos. A short walk through the area brings the visitor to a number of shops for a shopping experience.

  • We had a really nice tour of the Lakenhalle and the Belfort. This is a must see when you're in Ghent. The view you get from the top of the Belfort is magnificent. The guide was also very friendly and we learned a whole lot about the history of Ghent.

  • Great views of the city but a bit expensive - especially as there is no text in English (the app doesn't work on iPhones). I also wasn't told the top part was shut when I bought my ticket; unavoidable with the weather, but I would have gone a different day if told.
