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

After a pleasant 2 hour bus trip from Brugge, a look around the interesting rail station. A hunt for a town map a cool refreshment at the café opposite while I studied the bus/tram routes to get me into the old town. Helpfully answering my queries, the waiter advised that he thought he should be employed by the tourist department,... More

The old building is quite impressive although there are major rebuilding works going on at the moment as they update the platforms and infrastructure. Information boards and display screens were easy to understand even though not in English. Mostly information is in either Dutch or French. Travelled through here several times now and had no problems. Plenty of taxis at... More

I find it quite stupid to rate a railway station, but my point is in this review: building itself. Although made in fake historical style, about one century ago, it is worth seeing, with little towers and big clock tower. Station is not that big, just a regular one for a small european city, so it won't be a problem... More
