The beautiful city of Ghent is the capital and biggest city of the province of East Flanders. Much of the city's medieval architecture remains intact and is remarkably well preserved and restored, and more importantly, used.

Ghent also provides a number of gastronomic attractions, including local chocolate producers Leonidas and Dascalides, and local speciality dishes such as "Stoverij", a classic Flemish meat stew made with Trappist beer, and "Waterzooi", a local dish originally made with freshwater fish, now more usually with chicken.

Each year the city hosts numerous events, such as the 10-day long Ghent Festival, attracting over two million visitors, the Festival of Flanders, the Flanders International Film Festival, the Winterdream Festival and Christmas Market and the Six Days of Flanders track cycling races, held at the Kuipke velodrome.

Ghent Sint Pieters Station offers connections to Brussels and Brussels Airport, Bruges, Antwerp, other Belgian towns and also Lille in France. There are direct trains to Brussels Airport taking under 1 hour, and more frequent trains to Brussels (30 mins) where you can connect with the train to the airport (under 20 mins).

Brussels Airport has flight connections throughout Europe and also long haul. For guests arriving by car, Ghent is easily reachable, just 40 minutes from Brussels, 100 minutes from the Channel Tunnel, a little over 3 hours from Paris and less than 2 hours 30 minutes from Amsterdam.
