Good to know: Visiting Ghent

Public transport

Ghent has an extensive network of trams and buses to transport you around the city. To navigate, use Google Maps or ask a local. You can buy your public transport tickets inside the bus/tram, just ask the driver for one.


After midnight it’s harder to find a bus or tram that will bring you to your destination. My advice: go to the nearest big square to grab a taxi. Or just call this number: 0032 (0)9/222.22.22

Language & currency

English is widely spoken, so no need to worry about brushing up on your Flemish or French. Euro is the accepted currency, and it is important to have some on hand for payment. Not every place will accept credit cards.

Local food & drinks

Belgium may be famous for waffles and chocolate, but there’s so much more on offer! Drink special Belgian beers, fresh fries, the ‘Neuzekes candy’, a mastel, local cheeses with Ghentian mustard, ‘Gentse waterzooi’, ...

City Card

The City Card gives you access to multiple museums, as well as a canal cruise and bikes to use for the day. If you plan on doing some museum hopping, it is worth get- ting this card at the tourist office at the Veerleplein.

Rica Boutique House

Rica Boutique House is situated at Parklaan 8 at a central location. To get to the city centre, take tram 1 at Elisabethlaan (5 min walk). Get off at Korenmarkt. The Gent-Sint-Pieters station is right around the corner for daytrips to other cities.
