The activity voucher for Ghent is a “Mystic Lamb Combi Ticket”, on which you can visit the three locations where the Ghent Altarpiece (aka the Adoration of the Mystic Lamb) is being restaured: Sint-Baafs Cathedraal, the Caermers Abbey and the Museum of Fine Arts. The ticket comes with a map which lets you explore Ghent in the time of the Van Eyck brothers on foot.
