The 500 Hidden Secrets of Ghent reveals these good-to-know addresses, and many more. It's an affectionate guide to the city, written by Belgium explorer Derek Blyth. He tells you about the undiscovered chapels where you might be the only visitor, the cool coffee bars that play the best music and the hidden parks that are no bigger than a back garden: the places the author would recommend to a friend who wanted to discover the real Ghent.
This is a book for visitors who want to avoid the usual tourist spots and for residents who are keen to track down the city’s best-kept secrets. 500 addresses in total, presented in original lists of 5. Maps & index included.
