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.
