Almost a third of Ghent's 265,000 inhabitants are students. So it's no wonder that the city is young and innovative despite its historic backdrop. Regional, sustainable and veggie cuisine is a top priority. Time-honored buildings such as the Grafenburg, the Belfry and the cathedral can be enjoyed on a stroll along the canals. This is best done in the dark, when the Ghent lighting plan comes into play and everything is atmospherically illuminated. The highlight at the end: the Lamb of God Altar by the Van Eyck brothers is a must-see during any visit to Ghent.

The former industrial city on the Scheldt and Leie rivers is more alive than ever. Reasons enough to explore this gem.

Art and culture

You often walk past them without realizing it, but there are countless beautiful works of art in the streets, parks and squares of Ghent for all to see. In Ghent, you don't necessarily need to visit a museum to enjoy art. During this walk through the city center, you will discover works of art in public spaces.

Gastronomy - Europe's vegetarian capital

The world of fusion cuisine is at your feet. On your city trip, you will not only want to treat your eyes, but also your stomach. You can choose from a variety of restaurants, bars and cafés in Ghent. Ghent is Europe's vegetarian capital and its revolutionary chefs are causing a sensation on the international food scene.
