A lot of the children will definitely appreciate a boat trip on the canals or a horse-drawn cab tour.
From Easter to October the horses await you, prancing on Sint-Baafsplein (St Bavo’s Square) to bear you through town like a king. From the comfort of the carriage you can experience the city in a relaxing, soothing manner.
Duration: about 30 minutes
starting from Sint-Baafsplein
price: € 25 per carriage, for 4-5 people
Every weekend, on public holidays and daily during holiday
Note: the carriages are not in service during the Ghent Festivities (or in the event of extremely bad weather).
Castle of Counts
Adults find the Castle of the Counts imposing, but for children it is nothing less than breathtaking. All the stories about knights and ladies here suddenly become very real (the movieguide helps too).
