Another exceptional Gothic building located in the historical center of the city, charming place to enjoy a little 'relaxation in the building where it was used as a shopping mall, what once was a postal building. A short visit even outside it's well worth.

This is a lively square that is the hub of the old town in Ghent. There are many restaurants there and the buildings are stunning

Post Plaza is an exquisite building build initially to host the Post, but it was too big for the postal service and not used to the full. So it became a shopping center with stores, a beautiful cafe and a grocery store. Great for a...More

There are terrific views all around this plaza of the churches and old Post Office, but if you can, a stay in the The Post is a must.
