About

Here centuries-old history and high-tech facilities go hand in hand. Opposite the Castle of the Counts lies the monumental gateway (1689) to the Old Fish Market. Neptune keeps watch over the Scheldt (male) and the Lys (female).
The entirely renovated complex houses, among others, the Ghent Tourist Office. Looking for information? This is the place to be!
