The Light Festival puts the internationally acclaimed Ghent lighting plan in the spotlight and gives you the opportunity to catch a glimpse of Ghent’s unique hidden charm after sunset.
How to reach Ghent?
Ghent lies at the intersection of the E17 and the E40 motorways and is therefore easily accessible by car or coach. With two railway stations in the city, arrival by train is certainly an easy option. Gent-Dampoort station is within walking distance of the trail.
Low emission zone: register your vehicle to avoid a fine.
