Which route will you choose?
Gas route: the quickest route
Are you the ‘fast and restless’ type? Then take the fastest route from the city centre to the railway station (or vice versa). Efficient walking routes don’t have to be less pleasant.
Relax route: the quietest route
You like a little something more: a convenient and quick route, yes, but preferably one that allows you to relax too. This route runs along the water and quieter footpaths.
Fomo route: the most stimulating route
You are always looking for added value: even during a ‘functional’ walk, you want to see and experience something. Well, this walk passes the museums in the Arts Quarter and Ghent’s student district.
Would you rather not use your smartphone during your walk? You can also ask for a paper city map at the VisitGent info office or at the info point in Gent-Sint-Pieters railway station. Moreover, it is also easy peasy to find your way while walking: just follow the green signposts.
Places to take a break
Not in a hurry to catch the train or to get to the city centre? There are plenty of nice places to take a break along the various routes: a nice outdoor café, a park, a Ghent landmark. This way, you will already get a taste of Ghent on your way.
