Does your car have a foreign number plate? Register it to avoid a fine.
A vehicle with a foreign number plate must ALWAYS be registered. Your vehicle’s Euro standard and fuel type determine whether or not you are allowed to enter the city centre of Ghent. Clean cars can enter the city, polluting cars must pay.
Ghent is located on the intersection of two major European motorways: the E17 and the E40. From the E17 you take the ‘Gent Centrum’ turnoff. On the E40, from the motorway intersection in Zwijnaarde you first follow ‘Antwerpen’ (E17) and then take the ‘Gent Centrum’ turnoff.
The Ghent city centre may be the largest pedestrianised shopping area in Flanders, but you can easily park your car nearby. The P-route leads you to the various car parks that give access to the city centre. As soon as you enter the city, the digital signs of the P Route parking guidance system will quickly and conveniently direct you to the parking facility of your choice.
