    Another belfry, another UNESCO World Heritage site. This 91m belfry served as a bell tower, a fortified watchtower and the place where the documents evidencing the municipal privileges were kept.

    The Belfry is included in City Card Gent (so are all the main attractions, museums, a boat trip and use of De Lijn bus & tram) It's a good deal. Available here and at Visit Gent, hotels & De Lijn Read more

    You can take nice shots on top of Belfort, but even in the sunset time none of your photos can be as nice as the ones you take at bridges...

    Try their Android app for the panorama view. It has augmented reality to show you all the Ghent landmarks in real-time.

    One of the three towers in Ghent. Definitely worth a visit, climb up to the tower and enjoy the sight.

    The façade is adorned with the ‘Mammelokker’ which depicts the legend of Cimon who was condemned to starve to death. He was saved by his daughter who fed him daily from her breast.

    Try to be early on the tower. On top it's very small, so you have to wait when it's crowded.

    Good views. Optional elevator. If you're fading, you can ring the big bell with the hammer lever.

    Yukarıda, gökyüzü açıksa özellikle gün batımına doğru güzel kareler yakalayabilirsiniz ama yine de hiçbiri şehrin içinde, köprülerinde çektikleriniz kadar iyi olmayacak...

    Великолепный вид на город с башни. Есть информационный листок на русском. Для тех, кто не в восторге от винтовых лестниц, есть лифт.
