As this was the first thing we saw in Gent, given we came by train from Brussels, it represented a decent point of entry to this medieval city. The layout is easy to navigate and not overwhelming - it is not a big station, after all. What caught my eye from the start were the ceiling and wall mosaics and... More

Loved this town. A must visit place if you'd want to see this part of Belgium. It's steeped in beauty and culture. The castle was an additional surprise on this visit. Loved the markets and the shopping.

If you are interested in architecture and urban planning, it surely is worth to visit this train station. There are already major renovations under way since almost 10 years and it probably will take another 10 year before everything will be finished. Some highlights: - the old entrance building from 1913, look to the ceiling in the entrance hall. Also... More

The station itself will make heads turn and will tell you what is in store for you by the city. The station is clean, well connected and well organised. Just walk out of the station to enjoy a snack or packed lunch in a beautiful park before you head to the city by a tram lane right beside the park... More

Happened to bere couple of times, this 1912 made station is medium in size in terms of operations. Neat and clean, good for catching other mode of transport for old city. Clock tower and paintings on roof are impressive.

Exactly here where began my tour in Ghent and the same place where ended in nearby bus stop linking Ghent to the capital city Brussels. This particular train station is gig enough and very efficient, artistically it is enriched with beautiful mosaics on the ceiling of the waiting room. The only flaw of this station is the distance from the... More

Built in 1912 in preparation of the World Exhibition of 1913. The original part of the building is already fully renovated, outside and inside. The platforms and hallway under it arein a huge renovation process since 2006, that will last many more years. Renovated part already worth a visit!

The station is clean and informative. Better, multiple buses and street cars pass thru, which is essential as the old town ( destination for most tourists) is a 30+ minute walk through busy streets or a 15 minute ride. Take line 1 or 22 ( right in front of the station doors) to the old town. 3 € each way... More

The railway station has been build in 1912, for the world exhibition. At that time, it was state of the art. You still can see the old features (at the entrance). Since a few years, they are renovation all platforms. Now you can see at the front of the railway station the old building (1913), the entrance with beautiful paintings.... More
