Medieval buildings, canals, small laneways and interesting sights are prominent in Ghent’s city centre. It is an intriguing and fascinating city. It is less crowded than Bruges and Brussels, and has a more natural feel. It is easy to get around of foot and it...More

Beautiful architecture, charming atmosphere with people casually milling about or sunbathing near the river. We spent 4 nights in Belgium based in Brussels with some day trips and Ghent was our favorite. The city center is compact for walking. In addition to the extensive historic...More

Ghent is a must-see city in Belgium. Just being in the City Center is fantastic. It's a place you will want to spend not just one day, but probably several days. I wish I'd had more time there!

Highly recommended a visit as such a pretty city. We prefer to Bruges as bigger but less touristy. Restaurants all look lovely and some fab coffee shops.

Ghent is a slightly ‘bigger’ version of Bruges. There are nice cafes, shops and places of interests such as museums, cathedrals, markets, ... all within walking distance.

Take Tram 1 from tram station outside St Pieters, alight at Gravensteen station - easily identifiable by the castle and quite central.

There is a service from Brussels to Ghent. The main station in Brussels covers all destinations. Check when you buy your ticket for times.
