The 91-meter-high belfry of Ghent is one of three medieval towers that overlook the old city center of Ghent.
Construction of the tower began in 1313 to the design of master mason Jan van Haelst, whose plans are still preserved in a museum.
The rectangular hall adjoining the belfry was built to headquarter the affairs of the cloth trade that made the city rich during the Middle Ages. A small annex dating from 1741, called the Mammelokker.
