How to Reach Ghent

GET AROUND

  • On Foot: The city is quite small and much of the centre is easily on foot, but the train station is a little way out and you'd be best off taking a tram into the city from there.
  • By Bicycle: It can be quite a shaky experience given the number of cobblestone streets in the city, but bikes are a cheap and convenient way to get around.
  • Public Transport: Buses and trams form Ghent's public transport options and if you buy a 10 ticket pass, you get 10 journeys for 9 Euro. You must buy a ticket from machines, as they are not for sale in the vehicles themselves.
