Ghent in Lonely Planet's top 10 Every year, the Lonely Planet guide "Best in Travel" selects 10 cities that you must visit. For 2011, Ghent is in 7th place, after cities like New York and Tanger.

To quote the Lonely Planet: "Those who do hop off the train and stroll along the Leie River to the historic centre will have their eyes out on stalks. Here hides one of Europe's finest panoramas of water, spires and centuries-old grand houses. But this is no place to simply kick back: Ghent has one of Europe's most dynamic festival scenes, which vies for visitors' attention."
