A lovely part of Ghent city centre, with a labyrinth of cobblestoned narrow streets to navigate. We found local bars and restaurants that catered to their locals, rather than being tourist-traps which was heavenly to find! Not an easy place to find your way around...More

Like the rest of Ghent everything is tiny and walkable. Cute area with a lot of good shops - would recommend.

The 'Paters Hol' used to be one of the poorer neighborhoods in the city of Ghent. Today it is a buzzing place, packed with restaurants and boutiques, giving it a kind of Bohemian charm. Just wander round and enjoy a beautiful little terrace or a...More

Hi, the area is so tiny that it is difficult to get lost. The best is to stroll around and to enjoy the atmosphere as it is. If you still want directions, I would advise you to enter from the waterside, take the... More
