Historic center

The history of Ghent starts in the year 630, when the Holy Amandus chooses the confluence (or Ganda) of Leie and Schelde to build an abbey. Almost 1400 years of history are still tangible in the city today: a medieval castle in a moat, an impressive cathedral, a belfry, three beguinages, ... Nowhere else can you find so much history per square meter as in the Ghent historic tub!

Arts Quarter

n 2007, the tourist office of the city of Ghent renamed the district from the Reep to the Sint-Pieters station the 'Kunstenkwartier'. With no fewer than six museums, four theaters, the same number of music houses and two cinemas, this indeed seems well-chosen. Yet the name does not include everything that the neighborhood has to offer. The neighborhood has two beautiful extensive parks and forms the center of Ghent's student life. You will not only meet the students who have their faculties here, but also the many others who will take a step on Thursday evening in the Overpoortstraat, the Ghent neighborhood neighborhood par excellence. However, historic buildings are also plentiful. Just think of the Book Tower in Ghent, which became third during the Monumentenstrijd in 2007, or the Vooruit, once the most important socialist temple in the country. You will also find the Capitol, the Sint-Anna church and the Minard theater. And not to forget: the Saint Peter's Abbey on the Saint Peter's Square.
