About Ghent

An elegant city where medieval streets and historic monuments jostle with winding canals and modern museums, Ghent makes a relaxing city break. Families will enjoy strolling the cobblestone streets of the Old Town, couples will love the romantic boat rides along the canal, and culture-seekers will be impressed by the city’s art treasures.

  • Museum voor Schone Kunst (Museum of Fine Arts) - Contains a beautifully presented collection of early and modern art, including work from Flemish artists.
  • Werregarensteeg (Graffiti Alley) - A tiny alley near the city centre where graffiti art is permitted and celebrated.
