Hi Andrew, We were just in Ghent for just a day while traveling through Belgium and one thing we really loved was visiting Gravensteen Castle. It is a castle that, although parts were in ruin, was rebuilt to look like it once had during the Middle Ages. It's a big castle to explore and kids can run around and get some energy out while you tour it. The cute medieval area around it, Patershol, is a nice place to grab lunch. There is a nice square near Saint Nicholas' Church, which I believe is the oldest church in the city. We enjoyed walking the winding streets and grabbing treats like waffles and Gentse Neuzen, which are purple cone-shaped, gum-like treats filled with raspberry juice, from street vendors. Be sure to visit Vrijdagmarkt outdoor market, which is held on Saturday mornings.
