What people are saying:

The 91-meter-high Belfry of Ghent is one of three medieval towers overlooking the medieval city of Ghent, Belgium. Its height makes it the tallest Belfry in Belgium. The construction of this tower began in 1313 and was completed in 1380. The uppermost part of the bell tower building has been rebuilt several times to accommodate the growing number of bells.

    Really Cool!

    The belfry was a Medieval masterpiece. It was interesting to climb the spiral staircase up to the top lookout where the bells rang. We stayed to watch the clock work ring the various bells every 15 mi...
