The city of Ghent is one of Europe’s best-kept secrets. It is small enough to still feel cosy yet dynamic enough to have that lively urban feel. The city offers a unique blend of medieval whimsy that reflects its long history in combination with a vibrant and contemporary edge. It has the great benefit that it’s off the beaten tourist trail with stunning architecture along its canals, great food, quirky cafés, and some of Belgium’s most interesting museums.
Visitors of the apartment receive a free “2 days in Ghent” tourist guide, a collection of 40 original and fascinating locations, which includes places to eat, markets, cafés, museums and shops among others. Choose your favourite spots from the carefully curated list and create your own inspiring programme in town.
The apartment is located in Zwijnaarde (south of Ghent) opposite the UGent Technology Park. It’s less than 3 km from the Sint-Pieters train station and about 5 km from the city center. It’s in the immediate vicinity of both the E40 & E17 highway, the major traffic axes running through Belgium. From here it’s also easy to explore other cities like Bruges, Brussels, Antwerp or the Belgian coast… They’re all within 50 km from the city.
