Discover Gent

Must See:

Catch a tram, 100 metres from Holiday Inn Gent Expo, for the 18-minute ride into the centre of Gent. You can admire the 22 altars of the vast St Bavo’s cathedral, 12th-century buildings along the Graslei and the narrow medieval streets of Patershol.

Must Do:

Filliers’ famous distillery gives tastings of Belgian genever alcohol, flavoured with juniper or fruit, 20 minutes from the hotel in Deinze. If you like beer, try the Gruut brewery in Gent, where wheat beers are brewed with a twist of spice.

What’s New:

Thursdays in Gent have recently been designated Veggie Days, with restaurants and cafes serving up meat- and fish-free dishes. Pick up a Guide to Veggie Gent at the Tourist Office and order tasty fare at De Appelier vegetarian restaurant on Citadellaan.

Don’t Go Home Without:

Asking our friendly staff at Holiday Inn Gent Expo about booking a boat trip on Gent’s canals. Indulge yourself on a chocolate tour, and unwind with a glass of champagne on a party boat. For a relaxing experience, book a tour on a Venetian-style gondola.

Tips:

Invest in a Museum Pass to make the most of Gent’s many cultural attractions. Pay once for entry to the 12th-century Belfry, the Design Museum, the charming House of Alijn cultural museum and the SMAK contemporary art museum and receive 3-day tram access.
