Back to overview


The Blandijnberg… the heart of Ghent’s student district.

The restored Book Tower is still in full view. Would you also like to climb that tower and enjoy the unique view? Then you need a guide! We take you to the belvedere, the crowning glory of Henry Van de Velde’s work.

This walking tour will give you an idea of the architectural project of the Book Tower. What was the architect’s plan? What was realized? How was the restoration handled?

The highlight of this walk is the visit to the belvedere of the Book Tower: 64 m high above Ghent, you get a sublime 360-degree view of the city!
