Ghent, the city of Artevelde
Historical yet contemporary
Medieval yet hip
City buzzing yet green and peaceful
Ghent, known for it's rich history and typical East-Flemish hospitality, is the perfect place to live in. From historical buildings to contemporary street art, from romantic strolls along the Graslei to 10 days of festivities at Gentse feesten, this city is a pick-and-mix with something for everyone.
