Shopping in Ghent is wonderful. Ghent has the largest pedestrian shopping area in Belgium and a highly varied range of shops and markets, all within a stone’s throw of each other. In Ghent, you will find the big, famous clothing stores alongside authentic boutiques.

A lot of shops in Ghent are open on Sunday, but the first Sunday of each month is an absolute must for those who really love shopping. On these Sunday shopping days, most of the shops are open and a lot of activities are organised in the city centre. The shops are closed on public holidays.
