Ghent (‘Gent’ in Flemish) is a historic city, yet at the same time a contemporary one. The modern daily life of the city’s active inhabitants plays itself out against a gorgeous historical backdrop. In Ghent, they live, work and enjoy life over and over again each day.

Ghent breathes history but is also brimming with culture, sports, education and modern city life. The city's highlights include the Mystic Lamb, the acclaimed lighting plan which illuminates the buildings in a magical way after sunset, the Light Festival which takes place every three years (the next edition is in 2018), the Ghent Festivities and the largest range of veggie offerings in Europe. Not yet convinced? Ghent's history, art, wonderful architecture, water, rock ’n roll top gastronomy and joie de vivre are sure to win you over. The city also makes every effort to ensure that visitors enjoy their stay, including the thousands of students who provide Ghent with a fresh young vibe every academic year. For example, you can discover an alternative side to Ghent with the Concrete Canvas Tour which takes you on a cycling or walking tour of the city's graffiti. The city is alive and bids you welcome.
