We highly recommend exploring Ghent at dawn. The city looks completely different in the early hours of the morning and there won’t be many people around. But where can you go with your family if you feel like shopping, for example? Influencer Tiany Kiriloff will help you!

If you’re visiting Ghent, be sure to make use of the morning. Walk around the city and discover fun activities and great shops as soon as they open. Tiany Kiriloff, a true fashionista, will show you her favourite morning activities. She mapped out her ideal morning in Ghent with her family. Choose the activities you like or copy Tiany’s morning exactly thanks to the handy map.  

Fashionista/cool mum

You might know Tiany Kiriloff (1978) from TV. The Belgian presenter took her first steps in media land at Flemish youth channel JIMtv and later worked for other channels as well. Fashion and lifestyle have always been her specialties. She has a weak spot for sustainable Belgian fashion and has been a true trendsetter for decades.  The fashion queen has since become a real digital influencer and is a devoted mum to three daughters: Yéléna, Eloise and Otilia. The family loves going out together: from city breaks and hikes to a family surfing trip on the French coast. They love action and discovering new things, but equally enjoy spending quality time between the five of them.  

Tiany’s to dos

Tiany and her daughters had a busy morning in Ghent. To get the morning started nice and early, Kiriloff and her kids stayed the night in the Comic Art Hotel, a trendy hotel in the Prinsenhof neighbourhood. As the name might suggest, the hotel is decorated entirely in comic book theme. Tiany and her girls enjoyed a delicious breakfast in their room. A boat trip through the city was also one of the family’s favourite activities, as was spotting street art during a walk along the famous Graffiti Street, among others. The programme also included a felt workshop in the Museum of Industry, which the ladies left with their own felt creation. The family took a break in a cosy coffee shop and let their energy run wild – especially youngest daughter Otilia – at the playground in Baudelopark. Tiany and co ended their lovely girls’ morning in Ghent with a delicious lunch
