We Love

  • The Ghent River Hotel is one of the historic hotels in Ghent based in a 16th century Renaissance house and a building dating from the 19th century.
  • Ghent is like walking through a historical painting, an architectural masterpiece of castles, cathedrals, churches and old merchant houses. Truly an enchanting place!
  • Don't miss the chance to visit this amazing city and visit its lovely Christmas markets

Your Destination

Belgium's fourth-largest - and most beautiful - city is home to a quarter of a million people and a flourishing flower export trade. An important port, Ghent's city center is a pedestrian area that is like a museum to early Flemish architecture and a testament to the city's medieval might. Impressive Gothic sites, such as dramatic St. Bavo's Cathedral and the Castle of the Counts, inspire awe. The works of Flemish masters are housed in the distinguished Museum voor Schone Kunst.
