Geocache Description:


Ghent: the arts quarter
 

 
 

New spoiler on 13/04/2018 - Loop of 5,5 km through the Arts Quarter of Ghent.

Ghent is undeniable linked to the towers of St Nicholas’ Church, the Belfry and St Bavo's Cathedral which we also find in the city logo. Throughout the city you can find several other towers, towers you will see during your walk. Besides these towers, we will show you a number of known and lesser known places in the Arts Quarter of Ghent. You can perfectly combine this multi with "Ghent: the historical centre".

The cache
On a number of waypoints you must find the matching photograph. All photographs should be used once. In addition there are some waypoints (referencepoints) where you do not have to search and you can just enjoy the surroundings. The number of the waypoint gives you the value of the letter on the photo.

Examples
* suppose that you recognize photo A at waypoint 2, then A gets the value 2.
* suppose that you recognize photo B at waypoint 16, then B gets the value 16.

You will find the stash at:

N 51° 03 . (B-J) (L-I) (K-D-2)  E 003° 43 . (H-F) (C-G-8) (E-A-2)

Because this is a citycache there may be some deviation in the coordinates.

During the Ghent Festivities, the city is occupied by thousands of tourists and you can take part in numerous performances and events. A must for everyone. (www.visitgent.be)

You can park in various parking garages or use the P+R areas. (www.parkeerbedrijf.gent.be)
