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 Castle of the Counts

  • The old Fish market facing the even older Meat Hall

  • The 13th-century Dominican friary

  • The Ancient Port of Ghent with its mercantile houses, etc.

  • The old Law Courts of Ghent, the Opera, the Handelsbeurs concert hall

  • Going through the tunnels under the Laurentplein

  • The Castle of Gerald the Devil and the Episcopal Palace

  • The Nederschelde, alongside the Reep, until the new Scaldis water lock

  • Portus Ganda and the Saint George water lock

  • Baudelopark and the Museum of Industry
