Like all stations in Belgium very efficient, several eating outlets which were very busy. However it is worth visiting this station even if not travelling but to see the very ornate ceiling of the entrance hall. Very unusual and very beautiful

About 12 minute walk from Ghent Historic area. With connection to Brussels and onward with Eurostar to St Pancras. Excellent network.

A everybody knows in Belgium, the service of our railway company sucks to say the least. So I won't talk much about that. The building is old and is currently being renovated. They say it will take at least 10 years in total, so as it goes in Belgium, add another 5 years and the thing will be ready. The... More

The railway station was build for the World Exposition in 1913. No wonder it was up for some renovations and alterations. The impressive hall stayed, the tracks, stairs and corridors were up for something new. So, if you want to see how this railway station is reinventing itself, come round and watch. It will take another decade before it's ready,... More

The walls and ceilings of the railway station entry are covered in beautiful artwork that you will not want to miss as you hustle through to catch your train

A good-looking building which serves its main purpose well. It's a station so no-one plans to stay long. Convenient tram links to Ghent centre.

If, like us, your travel from G-S-P involves leaving from track 11 or 12, don't worry. These tracks, while all the way at the back of the platform hallway, are served by a large elevator and new escalators. If these should both fail at the same time, plan on having to deal with a long staircase.

Since many years now Ghent’s main railway station has been at the heart of a major renovation project, so the situation is changing constantly. Over time, a whole new neighbourhood will spring up at the back of the station. Project architect is Jacques Voncke, who was in charge of the spectacular modernisation of the Antwerp railway station. Fortunately our train... More
