I've been to Gent so many times and I've never had the chance to go up in the 91m Belfry of Gent. Entry price is only five euro.
Now was the perfect time as people visiting are more interested with the Christmas market happening at the foot of the Belfry. Getting all the way up is not too difficult, it's just really narrow and the steps smaller and narrower than most steps. Once you are at the top, the view is spectacular. I was so fortunate to see this incredible sunset. I had the entire top to myself so I really took my time. You can see the entire Christmas market from here, people eating, walking about having a great time, the ice skating rink and the lights. Belgium never looked more beautiful.
