After a long afternoon in Bruges, I headed to Ghent. It was the first time that I visited this city and I now declare it my favourite city in Flanders. I kind of knew that I would like it because I had seen photos of it. But it exceeded my expectations by far. The centre is smallish and a bit maze-like. But there was so much going on. Unlike in Luxembourg, the Christmas market was still open, there were lots of restaurants, cafés and people. Shopping-wise there was a great choice of high-street stores, some boutiques carrying luxury brands and small independent shops. There are enough tourist sights to even out a two-day stay. A must-see is the Ghent Altarpiece by Hubert and Jan van Eyck. I didn't know that Ghent was also home to famous mustard by Tierenteyn-Verlent. This is something I found out when my blogger friend Jan sent me on a mustard mission via Instagram. I also bought some for me because I am very curious to try it. In my next post I will show you where I stayed and which restaurants I tried.
