Parking

We are planning a trip in Benelux at the end of September and we'll be traveling with a car.

What are the prices for parking in Ghent? What are the names of big parking spots? Where can I find reliable information regarding in the internet?

Thanks a lot:)

1. Re: Parking

The medieval city center of Ghent is a pedestrian area. Don't try to go there by car, you might get a fine. Around this area, there are more than 10 underground car parks, connected by a P-route. The main car parks have numbers (P1-P10). There is also limited space for parking in the streets. You'll have to pay using the ticket machines.

A full day in an underground parking (P1-P10) would cost between €10 (city owned parkings) and €15 (private parkings).

The cheapest and newest underground parking is P10 Sint-Pietersplein with 700 places. It will cost you only €2,50 for a full day! This parking is very close to the museums SMAK, MSK, Saint-Petersabbey, Citadelpark and STAM and a 20 minutes walk to the cathedral and historical medieval area. The walk is quiet nice, because most of it runs through an interesting city area with lots of students.

tip: most underground parkings have public toilets

Public transportation is an easy way to get around in the city. Trams are most comfortable (lines 1, 4, 21 & 22).

Some trams (mostly line 1) have longer cars (30m) with low floors and wide doors. Platforms on that route are built higher to give easy access. Other lines are being modified to give access to all in the near future.

Tram 1 has stops near main touristic areas.

De Lijn is the Flemish company for busses and trams. Ghent City map: www.delijn.be/images/stad_gent_tcm7-15674.pdf

tip: Ghent Museumpass (€20) gives access to all museums + free use of all busses and trams during 3 days
