Ghent

Ghent melds the fairy tale-like beauty of Bruges with its stunning Flemish architecture, while at the same time supporting a vibrant cafe and bar scene. This combination of historical and artistic value brings Belgium's fourth-largest city to life. Museums, medieval streets, and Gothic sites make Ghent special. Many visitors take time to experience the city's lively pedestrian zone, which features restaurants and cozy bars that locals adore and that make tourists feel at home in this foreign city.

Where to stay in Ghent

One of Belgium's main cities, Ghent offers a good variety of places to stay. Because of its proximity to the capital city of Brussels and the city of Bruges, Ghent has fewer options than one might expect for a city of its size. Locals recommend booking a room in advance. The city has options for travelers on any budget, from inexpensive hostels to pricier hotels, with most visitors choosing to stay within the historical center. Prices drop slightly as you move away from the Old Town.
