Fodor's Review

Three of Gent's favorite locals are honored in this 18th-century former governor's home, which can be visited with a guide every Friday and Saturday at 2:30 pm. The Nobel Prize–winning playwright and poet Maurice Maeterlinck (1862–1949) kept a library in this elegant Neoclassical building, which still contains his personal objects, letters, and documents. A cabinet showcases work by the artist Stuyvaert, who illustrated Maeterlinck's publications, and the painter Doudelet. Look for the 18th-century silk wall decorations in the Chinese salon. Tickets can be bought at Uitbureau Gent at 82 Veldstraat.
