The Belfry of Ghent

This building is part of the world heritage. When you look at the magical skyline of Ghent, you cannot miss it. The Belfry is the middle tower of the famous row of towers, between the Saint Baafs Cathedral and the Saint Nicholas Church. The Belfry of Ghent symbolises the city's prosperity and independence. The Belfry also houses a city carillon. Do you want to hear the city carillon? Then you have to visit the city centre on Sunday afternoons from 11:00 to 12:00 or on the first Friday evening of the month from 20:00 to 21:00 and admire the special sounds of the city carillon. For an even better view, there is also the possibility to climb the tower.
