Because Lonely Planet and National Geographic Traveler Magazine called our city Europe’s best kept secret and the most authentic historic city in the world.

Because you should at least once witness with your own eyes what Napoleon and the mysterious thief of “the Just Judges” panel already knew: The Mystic Lamb really is key to European art history.

Because Ghent is beer and food heaven.

Because the city comes to life again after sunset.

How to get there?

Ghent (Gent in Flemish) is centrally located in Europe, at the crossroads of highways between Amsterdam, Paris, London and the Ruhr Area. The city is easily accessible by car, train and plane.

By car

Ghent is situated at the intersection of two major European highways: the E-17 connects Northern Europe with the Southern countries, and the E-40 goes from the North Sea up to Eastern Europe.

By train

Ghent is easily accessible from all Belgian and European cities and only half an hour away from Brussels Midi Station. Thanks to the high speed train Eurostar, Ghent is only 2 hours away from Paris and less than 3 hours from London, Amsterdam and Köln.

By plane

Ghent is only 45 minutes away from Brussels Airport with connections throughout the world. The other Belgian Airports (Oostende, Antwerpen, Liège and Charleroi) serve several European destinations and are directly connected to Ghent.
