    I live in Ghent, Belgium...Here are some pics...

    The Three Towers of Ghent (in the last building, the Sint Baafs, the famous Van Eyck painting "The Agnus Dei" is kept. One part of that paiting was stolen in the early 1930ties)

    Never visited "de dulle griet" or "de trollenkelder" ? They have lots of different beers there.

    Yeah -- have been to the trollenkelder, I think. It's across the other side of town from the castle -- heading through the square, right?

    At least, I've been to a place with lots of beer and lots of trolls :smile:
