Tram lines interrupted

The public transport in the city is well organised, with a comprehensive network of trams and buses. From early in the morning until late at night, the buses and trams will take you anywhere in and around Ghent.

A free map with the service in Ghent can be asked for at the so-called Lijnwinkels (the shops of transport company ‘De Lijn’), located at the main bus terminals: near Gent-Sint-Pieters railway station, near Korenmarkt and at Gent-Zuid (Ghent South). This map is also available at the Inquiry Desk Visit Gent.

Buy your ticket in advance at the ‘Lijnwinkels’ or from the vending machine at the bus stop.

The Lijnwinkel Gent-Zuid is open from Monday to Friday from 7:00 a.m. till 7:00 p.m. That also applies to the one at Gent-Sint-Pieters, except for a lunchbreak from 0:15 till 0:45 p.m.

The Lijnwinkel near the Korenmarkt is open from Monday to Saturday from 10:00 a.m. till 0:15 p.m. an from 0:30 p.m. till 5:00 p.m. 

The Vleeshuisbrug and Hoofdbrug bridges - renovation works: tram lines interrupted

During the works public transport company De Lijn will be redirecting tram routes no. 1 and 4. No trams pass through Korenmarkt and by the Castle of the Counts in this period. However, the Visit Gent tourist information office (opposite of the Castle of the Counts) will remain accessible for pedestrians and cyclists. The route between Korenmarkt and Castle of the Counts is a 5 minute walk (350 metres).

Do you still want to go directly to the tourist office or the Castle of the Counts by public transport, starting at Gent-Sint-Pieters railway station? Please take tram line 4, direction Lange Steenstraat, until Rabot. There you can change to tram line 1, direction Castle of the Counts (Gravensteen). This route might take a bit more of your time, but in the meantime you can enjoy a nice ride through the city of Ghent.

In the neighbourhood


Huis van Alijn Gent
When you enter the splendid indoor garden of this former place of worship, it seems as if you have left the city.
Gent Belfort
Above the Ghent skyline towers the Old Belfry, lonely and grey, an iconic symbol of the past.
Sint-Baafskathedraal Gent
A trove of art treasures: 22 altars, a Rococo pulpit in marble and oak and of course the exquisite highlight: "The Adoration of the Mystic Lamb" by the Van Eyck brothers.
