At Graslei and Korenlei, watch the perfectly preserved facades of medieval port houses reflected in the river. Nestled in the prospering heart of the inner city along the banks of the old port, the two streets were named after the goods--herbs, vegetables, and wheat--that were once stored in this area. To truly experience Ghent, sit on the cobblestones on either side of the water and soak up the atmosphere watching tour boats passing and people go by. If you get thirsty, check out one of the many cafe terraces. Work out when and for how long to visit Graslei and Korenlei and other Ghent attractions using our handy Ghent sightseeing planner.
