Ghent overview

A flight to Ghent will transport you to a city steeped in history: In addition to serving as the birthplace of Charles V, one of the most notable monarchs in European history and former Holy Emperor of the Roman Empire, Ghent is where the Treaty of Ghent was signed to conclude the War of 1812. This Belgian city, located in the province of Flanders, is home to majestic castles that have been standing since the 15th century. 

Ghent was once the largest cloth producer in Europe and the largest medieval city after Paris, but today these beautiful stone backdrops provide a quaint setting for one of Belgium’s most underrated cities. Ghent normally takes a backseat to Bruges and Brussels, but visitors will find plenty to do here throughout their stay: Ghent hosts a milieu of marvellous festivals over the course of the calendar year, including the Gentse-Feesten each July and the International Film Festival of Flanders every October. Even if there’s no party scheduled for the dates coinciding with your holiday, the countless museums, cafes and cultural events are sure to make your visit to Ghent one you’ll never forget.
