The Krook neighbourhood is again very trendy once more
Explore the Zuid-site. This forgotten Ghent neighbourhood on the “Waalse Krook“ is now very much alive thanks to the brandnew library De Krook.
More about this tour
Did you know there was once a zoo on the Zuid-site? The guide will tell you the exciting story of this neighbourhood: from early industrialization over decay to revival. Listen to the many anecdotes about the old railway station, the notorious Kuiperskaai, the Minard theatre, the “lascivious“ Kortedagsteeg, the geographical “krook” in the Nederschelde and so many more. The last stop is the library De Krook: you’re welcome to explore it on your own, but why not do so with a guide?
