Ghent by train

by vpeter

Hi fellowtravelers,

Hope someone can help me. I'm goin to Ghent by train 10th Februari.
I booked a B&B in the Burgstraat/Burgstreet (near Gravensteen).
What's the best to do: off train at Ghent St. Pietrs and taking the tram to Burgstreet/Gravensteen area.
Or is Ghent Dampoort a better option, and if can you tell me which tram or bus I have to take to Burgstreet/Gravensteen?

Many thanks in advance and happy travels
peter

I asume you're coming from Antwerpen then?
Currently there are works in the centre of the city, and as a result many tram and bus lines are not running their normal routes. As a result getting to the Gravensteen area is currently a bit of a pain, regardless of wether you get out at Dampoort or St. Pieters.
Normally to get to Burgstraat you would take tram 1 from st. Pieters, which has a stop on that street. However the tram currently does run through that street only in the direction towards st. Pieters.
If you have a lot of luggage you could take nr. 4 at st. Pieters till the Rabot stop, and change for a nr. 1 tram back to st. Pieters. Otherwise just take the number 3 at Dampoort, and get of at Peperstraat and walk.

(note: line starting with A run in the evening, and N at night)

Travel Tips for Gent

Left Luggage at St Pieters Railway Station

by johngayton

To the left of the main station hall you'll find both a manned facility and lockers for left luggage. The lockers are for short-term usage (up to 24 hours) whilst the manned facility can be used for longer term storage (or if you just prefer it for security).

I've only used the lockers and found them simple and safe. There's three sizes: small, medium and large. The small ones are spacious enough (and quite deep) for most purposes and cost, at the time of writing, 3 Euros - correct change in coins. The system is simple: find an open locker and put your bag in. When you close the door the light should change from green to red then you put your money in and the door locks. The machine issues you a ticket with a barcode and a pin number.

To retrieve your luggage simply scan the barcode on the scanner (marked AFHALEN) and the locker should open automatically. I assume the pin number is a back-up just in case the scan doesn't work.

Beer

by aah_stone

When arrriving in Gent i honesty had no idea there would be a beer festival happening just by my hotel.

Fantastic!!

Loads of different beers to sample with live music and a geat friendly relaxed atmosphere. Boy were some of them strong :-)

It was the weekend before the big Gent Festival and I got the impression that t his beer fest was also a regular event. Try and make it here next year :-)

Visit the Saint Bhaaf's...

by Pavlik_NL

Visit the Saint Bhaaf's cathedral in which a few magnificent paintings of Peter Paul Rubens can be admired. Here also is the famous three-look 'De aanbidding van het lam Gods) of the brothers Van Eijck. Hubert and Jan were the first of the famous generations of Dutch classic painters. The echoing cry of laughter of our little son Ilja inside the cathedral, when he saw the beautiful colours on one of Rubens paintings (great accoustics have these churches - hihi).

There are some fine old...

by steventilly

There are some fine old buildings along the riverside in Gent. This is a view of The Graslei, a row of old guild houses and warehouses that are very ornately decorated. Opposite The Graslei is The Korenlei, which is a row of old merchant houses. The river here used to be the main harbour of Ghent, and it is now the base for boat trips around the canals of Gent.

Church of St. Nicholas

by zrim

As seen from the top of the Belfort.

This church has a tremendous gothic presence that looms over central Gent. While the exterior is fantastic, the interior is fairly plain and simple. Apparently, it was looted and ransaked in centuries past, so there are no must see works of art or the normal treasures found in old medieval churches and cathedrals.

I like this photo because you can easily see the flying buttresses which are a little hard to sight from ground level.
