Ghent became an island again: the circle is completed! You sail around the city centre, guided either live or by audio-guide.
And as a bonus surprise: you pass through a water lock! Even better: two water locks. We descend through the Scaldis water lock and ascend through the Saint George lock.
This tour offers a surprisingly large number of sights:
St Bavo’s Cathedral, the Belfry and St Nicholas’ Church
Old guildhalls of boatmen, masons, grain measurers, etc.

The old Fish market facing the even older Meat Hall
