There should be a bus from the airport there to meet your flight, take it to Brussels and I reckon stay the night in Brussels and then go to Gent in the morning - unless you have something lined up to stay at in Charleroi.

Choosing cheap airlines means unfortunately some inconveniences. Last train on friday from Brussel-Zuid railway station to Gent is at 00:32 (then it's saturday already).

Travel Tips for Charleroi

It's beautiful...

by laurinedierge

The square Charles II is the most important place where several events during the year take place with its town hall, its church and its jets of water. For example, in February, the carnaval’s procession and more particularly the “Gilles” march in the streets to the square Charles II. Next to it, there is “le palais des beaux-arts” where you can see a lot of play and opera. When the sun is at the rendezvous, a lot of people go to this square to have a drink. It’s a meeting place. More particularly during the rare heat waves, the teenagers play in the jets of water to freshen oneself up. It’s very funny. At Christmas, there is a Christmas market on this square. You can buy artisanal’s articles, local specialities,…
This square charles II is the centre of Charleroi

Although its all defects, Charleroi is the most pleasant town. We hope to see you in our town.

...get off the train. Don't...

...get off the train. Don't let the billowing ugly factories that encircle the city put you off, Charleroi is actually an alright enough place to be. It has a fantastic enormous market on Sundays and regular exhibitions at the Palais des Beaux Arts, such as the Comic Strips shows: Charleroi is the comic strip capital of Belgium. But me, the place I go to on a more than regular basis is Ville2, the shopping mall in the north part of town. It cannot be beat, man! The beers. Belgian beers make every other country's alcohol look and taste like pwiss - here you get quality, and I mean quality.

I'll give you a top Five personal favourite list:
Fruit Défendu (Forbidden Fruit) - bloody gorgeous, spicey, textured, 9°abv ....
Charles Quint - drunk in a blue mug, not one for the weak stomached. eat with lots of cheese, preferably a Manilow album ....
Leffe Blonde - a softer, lighter drink, but still potent enough for a foreigner unused to Belgium. Lovely taste. Definitely a ***ter. ....
Kwak - this one's great fun, you drink it from one of those wierd shaped yard of ale type glasses on a rack. Easy enough to drink but my mate got sick after one, fool. ....
Chimay Bleue - the bollocks. I don't drink it too often, unlike my Belge friends, cos this one is the best drink in the world. Ranks fifth in mine though.

The smoky skyline

by rickyvilla81

Yes, this place has an atmosphere alright - mainly consisting of sulphurous fumes. The city is surrounded with a very decaying industry. Slag-heaps known as "terrils", covered in grass and trees since the decline of the mines, dot the landscape of the Pays Noir. On the way into town you see steelworks and the like for miles, and although this isn't exactly inviting there is a strange beauty to it all.

Being the capital of BD (bandes dessinee, or comic strips), Charleroi honours its heroes with many statues. Here is Spirou, having his picture taken. Although he is holding a football, it is more with basketball that he is associated, as the local team is named after him.

Sports at Charleroi

by laurinedierge

When you arrive in Charleroi, you can see the football stadium which is imposing, grandiose.
And yet, the Charleroi’s team, The “Zebra” is not very good. Fortunately they are still in division 1 and the supporter are always present at each match. If you have got a free time, go on and see it. The basketball is very popular too. The “Spirou’steam” is the best team of Belgium and in each match, there is an incredible, lively atmosphere. Everybody cheer them on in “le spirou Dôme”, the new court!! You must to be at a match!!! And it’s cheap! don’t forget the ping-pong’s team who is European champion.
You can do others sports like swimming, tennis , Badminton, …
