Ghent has two tourist quarters where all tourist attractions are within walking distance of each other. They seamlessly blend together. The most important museums can be found in the Arts Quarter. Historical buildings and monuments, on the other hand, can be found in the Historical Centre. Both quarters have restaurants and cafés where you can take a break.

The Arts Quarter is a neighbourhood where art lovers belong and students come home to. The Booktower is its heart. The quarter is home to the city’s main museums which are all within walking distance from one another. In fact the Museum of Fine Arts is right across the street from the S.M.A.K.! A short walk (downhill!) brings you to the STAM, the City Museum, which provides the ideal introduction to the past, present and future of Ghent. Music Centre De Bijloke, with its exceptional acoustics, is a stone’s throw away from the STAM museum. It’s the home of classical, contemporary and jazz music.
