Have a look at my Ghent pages. The walking tour is very good. Also, I suggest that you take a boat trip. Do not miss a visit to the Van Eyck altarpiece.

Travel Tips for Gent


by hippoliet


If you are a backpacker, exchange student, day-tripper or student from anywhere in the world, if you don't have a lot of cash, but definitely do have a lot of curiosity and happen to be in and around Ghent for any length of time, then Use-it is the tourist information service for you. Whether you prefer to take a front row seat or to really get your sleeves rolled up and your hands dirty, Use-it always presents the facts you need to know in an accessible, no-nonsense way and gives you the information you need to get the most out of Ghent.

"Where can I get a good, cheap bed for the night?", "What's there to see in Ghent except for Van Eyck and the Gravensteen?", "Where can I meet other young people?", "I'm starving... where can I go to get some cheap eats?", "What's interesting in and around Ghent?"... Use-it knows the answers to all of these questions (and a whole lot more besides). The people behind Use-it will tell you everything you need to know about the city - from quaint to alternative, from tasty to trendy, from interesting to surprising... and from cheap to even cheaper! The Use-it team will be scouring the city and its surroundings from top to bottom and presenting a veritable treasure trove of top tips and useful information in convenient, bite-size chunks especially tailored for a young audience.

You can find Use-it on the Sint-Pietersnieuwstraat 21 in Ghent (Belgium), straddling the student area and the historic city centre. From the Sint-Pietersstation take tram 1 or 12 and get off at the 'Plateaustraat'. After following the tram tracks for another 100 meters turn to your right, into the Bagattenstraat. At the end of the street you'll see arts centre Vooruit, our neighbours. There we are! I love Belgium and the best place is Ghent, where it all happens. Music, parties, meeting friends, living and eating … it’s as if Ghent people are more relaxed about it all than say people in Brussels. Ghent, in general, is a town where you better look out: the art is on the streets. In Ghent, all of those tiny medieval streets can really disorientate you. You never know exactly where they are taking you or where you will end up. The heartbeat of the city goes through it''s active nightlife which seems to last for ever. Here, most bars close only at sunrise. I also really like the open mentality people have in Ghent - you get introduced to people''s friends, invited out and are always welcome to tag along.
The Gentse Feesten is a festival with lots of music and theatre in the city of Ghent (Belgium). It is the largest of its kind in Europe. It starts on the Saturday before July 21 (the Belgian National Holiday) and it lasts ten days. About 2 million people visit Ghent during these ten days, which is four times as much as the carnival festival of Rio de Janeiro.

when visiting Gent, you...

by dorotkao

when visiting Gent, you absolutely must check out the 'Gent Festival' which is usually held in mid june of each year. my fondest memory of gent would have to be the (as I call it) 'the little pissing corners' located on almost all the corners.

The former Capitole

by Luchonda

Once a famous cinema....hugging and kissing at the backrows of the movies...not only on a saturday night.
Once upon a time we had about 32 cinema's in Ghent.
But time changes : The Capitole is renovated and became a cultural temple in Ghent
- Top live performances of local and international stars
- Theater Just stay a while in this magnific city - you will be convinced and have fondest memories

Het Velootje !!! The coolest...

by suncat

Het Velootje !!! The coolest place what i've ever seen. A pub with old bicycles, sceletons, bric-a- brac, like a lumber-room, but very-very intimate. No really strong light but a fireplace. The owner sits usuallyy at this fireplace. Once he didn't have more wood for the fire, stood up and dropped his lopsided chair with the biggest peace of mind to the fire. The rain and the wind... Well, it was only a joke.
I can't explain but I miss Gent so much.
