Check also our summer promotion.

This summer we organise a weekly Van Eyck walk. Check dates and book this walk Summer promotion.

Ghent is the proud owner of the Adoration of the Mystic Lamb! Jan and Hubert Van Eyck made this altarpiece in Ghent at the beginning of the 15th century. Imagine following their tracks! Are there any buildings and places they passed by and that we can still admire today?
For sure! Our stroll begins at St Bavo’s Cathedral where this world heritage can be admired!*
Our guide will take you along other medieval gems that Jan Van Eyck must have seen with his own eyes. So come and taste these sources of inspiration. The Mystic Lamb has inspired contemporary artists, like street artists, in many fields.
* Visiting the Ghent altarpiece itself is not included.
