The Boekentoren (book tower)

Blandijnberg... the heart of Ghent's student area.
The recently restored Boekentoren is back in the spotlight. Would you like to climb the tower and enjoy the unique view? Then you need a guide! From October 2021 onwards we will take you to the belvedere, the crowning glory of Henry Van de Velde's work.

“The Boekentoren on Blandijnberg” (with belvedere)
This short walk gives you insight into the architectural project of the Boekentoren. What was the architect’s plan? What has been realised? How was the restoration approached?
The highlight of this walk is the visit to the belvedere of the Boekentoren: at a height of 64 m above Ghent you’ll be baffled by the sublime 360-degree view of Ghent’s skyline!
Duration: approximately 1.5 hours
Fees: € 175 for groups up to 15 participants
