You want to enjoy Ghent to the full during your weekend trip. Ghent is a city on a human scale, and the sights in the historic city centre are not very far apart.

Wander around in Ghent

Ghent is a city with a small-town feel: don’t be afraid to throw away your handy walking map and follow your nose. It’s so much more fun to discover things for yourself. Ghent is a cultural cocktail. There is art everywhere you turn. Wander around the largest low-traffic pedestrian zone in Europe. Walk up and down the streets, experiencing the real Ghent among its nonconformist residents who keep the city alive and kicking.
