While Ghent's city centre is pedestrian-friendly, renting a car is an excellent choice to explore the wider region and enjoy a sense of independence during your holiday. Just remember - like the rest of continental Europe, Belgians drive on the right side of the road, opposite to the UK.

Car Class Recommendations

Considering Ghent's quaint streets and compact city centre, smaller cars, like economy and compact classes, are highly recommended. They are not only easier to manoeuvre and park but also more fuel-efficient.

Parking in Ghent

Ghent offers several underground car parks in and around the city centre. However, remember to check the parking fees, as they can be quite costly. An often more affordable alternative is P+R areas located outside the city centre, offering free shuttle bus service to the city.

Top Attractions and Neighbourhoods

Ghent is brimming with historic landmarks, breath-taking architecture, and charming neighbourhoods, rich in heritage.

The historic heart of Ghent is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and home to stunning medieval buildings like Saint Bavo's Cathedral, the Belfry, and the Gravensteen Castle.

Patershol

Patershol is Ghent's oldest neighbourhood, renowned for its maze-like streets and exquisite culinary scene.

Portus Ganda

Bordering the historic centre, Portus Ganda is a vibrant marina complemented by charming terraces and beautiful views of the medieval Portus Ganda Abbey.

Practical Information

Ghent's temperate maritime climate is fairly similar to the UK, with rainfall spread evenly throughout the year. However, the best time to visit Ghent is between May and September, when you can enjoy outdoor events like Ghent Festivities in mid-July. In terms of currency, Euro (€) is used, whereas English is widely spoken among the locals. Always carry your driving license, identification, insurance papers and registration while driving.

With a rich historic charm, stunning architecture and scenic neighbourhoods, Ghent ensures an unforgettable journey. Renting a car empowers you to explore this stunning city at your own pace - uncovering every hidden gem Ghent has to offer.
