During a business trip to Belgium, I had the opportunity to visit Ghent. Leaving from the town of Liege, it takes around 2 hours by train to Ghent.
The Liege train station, Liege Guillemins has a really beautiful architecture
The train stop at Ghent is at Gent Sint Pieters station
Best place to start exploring is getting off the tram stop at Gravensteen where the tourist office is.
As it was only a day trip for me i only managed to cover the most popular sights.
Inside St Bavo’s cathedral
At Graslei there are many boat tours which cost around EUR7 for those interested in the river cruise. Ghent is really beautiful and easily can be explored by foot or trams. Given more time the day city card is good value that covers transport and entries into most attractions.
