Ghent, for you

Looking for accommodation without breaking the bank? Ghent offers many affordable hotels and hostels, a campsite and a youth hostel (soon two even!). That allows you to save up for something else… an extra night in Ghent for example!
Is this your first visit to the city with children? Then let a guide show you the ropes. On foot, by boat or in a carriage. Rather go it alone? Why not? Go by bicycle or even by boat. There are some crazy things to do with children in Ghent.

Ghent is a paradise for veggie lovers. Since, proportionally, our city has more vegetarian restaurants than say Paris or London, we can call ourselves the veggie capital of Europe. A title we should be proud of! Discover our veggie restaurants and our sustainable food, drinks and accommodation offering.

Planning a quick visit to the city’s many highlights? What a pity! Ghent should be savoured to the full! And to do that, you need more than one day!

About Ghent

Ghent is a historic city, yet at the same time a contemporary one. The modern daily life of the city’s active inhabitants plays itself out against a gorgeous historical backdrop. In Ghent, they live, work and enjoy life over and over again each day.

A couple enjoys the peace of an authentic beguinage. Parents and children stroll through the traffic-free streets of the city centre. A tourist snaps a photo of the three towers, as so many have before, but just a little differently. A businessman with an iPhone walks along the distinctive Graslei, crosses the Lys and enters his stylish four-star hotel hiding behind a medieval facade. Dozens of pavement cafes invite you to discover Ghent’s specialities. The sun is reflected in the many waterways.

The city is alive and bids you welcome.
