Ghent's pedestrian signposts will guide you to the main sights in the historical centre and the arts quarter. These tourist signposts were realized with the support of Interreg "France-Wallonie-Vlaanderen" Golden Leie-Lys.

Although Ghent is a lively city with a great deal to offer, you can still explore the city perfectly well on foot. Most of the museums and attractions are within walking distance of each other. Still think it's a bit far? If so, hire a bicycle or simply take the tram. The CityCard Gent allows you to use all the trams & buses in Ghent for no extra fee!

The sites will help you find your way

The city is divided into the historical centre and the arts quarter. In turn, these two areas of the city are divided into several distinct sites. At 40 locations in the city, you will find tourist information boards showing a brief description of the attractions in the site in question and a handy map. Reference is also made each time to the nearest stop for the hop-on hop-off watertaxi.

There are signposts all over the city. Right at the top, you can see your current location in terms of the site and area of the city. Enjoy your walk!

This wayfinding project was made possible with the support of Interreg 'France-Wallonie-Vlaanderen' Golden Leie-Lys:

Walking in Ghent

Ghent is an ideal city to discover on foot. In the city centre, the places of interest are within walking distance. You can easily discover them on your own or with a guide.
Or how about a walk along the Sunday markets, following in the footsteps of medieval merchants, a discovery tour of the city's many green areas or Ghent by night?
