    Ghent Guide

    The city’s wealth was due to the region’s flourishing cloth and flower trade, which is why the city is sometimes called Flower City. But the name Artevelde City is also common, recalling the Ghent uprising of 1382 led by Philipp van Artevelde. Today, Ghent is recognised as the capital of East Flanders – and is home to around 250,000 inhabitants. Along the Ghent canals in the heart of the city, along the Korenlei and Graslei, you can still see old guild houses that remind you of the city’s rich history.

    The city’s landmark is the Ghent Belfry, the 95-metre-high tower not far from the Gothic-Romanesque St. Bavo’s Cathedral, whose history dates back to 942 AD. Visitors interested in culture can discover museums such as the Stadsmuseum Gent, the Design Museum Gent or the Stedelijk Museum voor Actuele Kunst in the East Flemish city. The city is also known for the music festivals that are regularly held on site, such as the Ghent Jazz Festival and the Festival van Vlaanderen.
