Ghent - Overview

Ghent for many is the hidden gem in Belgium’s crown. It is a rare city, a magical place that is able to preserve both its proud medieval treasures and keep up with modern times. Ghent ’s centre showcases medieval Flemish wealth and commercial success - prepare to be stunned by many architectural delights that include Gothic, Romanesque and Baroque churches. The city has an extensive network of canals and endless streets to explore, which are some of the most picturesque in the Flanders region.

"In the whole of Christendom, there is not a people to be found with the disposition of the citizens of Ghent". Erasmus Van Rotterdam (1469 - 1536)

Ghent boasts the largest number of listed buildings in Belgium. There is no other place with so many monuments in such a small area.

Set amongst the historical buildings and monuments are peaceful, green areas but there is also a lively range of bars, clubs and restaurants meaning Ghent has something to offer everyone.

With a climate similar to the UK, there are things to see and do no matter what time of year you visit.

A large area of the city centre is pedestrianised or has traffic-calming measures in place making it easier to get around on foot, by bike and on public transport.

Many of Ghent’s monuments are illuminated at night so a nighttime stroll is definitely recommended.
