Gemeente Visit Geraardsbergen

Cultural heritage

Geraardsbergen has every right to be proud of its tangible heritage: from castles to workman’s cottages, from abbeys to industrial buildings, from cultural landscapes to archaeological sites. Each of these places reveal a wealth of information about our past and tell an unexpected story about today. Come to think of it, there’s no shortage of intangible heritage either! Our Krakelingen Festival and our Giesbaargs dialect are known far beyond the city boundaries.
