Gent is a compact, authentic city where the past and present co-exist in perfect balance. Walking through the city is like travelling through time: you turn the corner and just like that, you go from the fourteenth century to the twenty-first.
In Gent pounds the young heart of a cultural city filled with music, theatre, film and visual arts.
The city is spectacular during the day, but at night it comes to life once again. The beautifully lit buildings and monuments in the city centre create a magical atmosphere. Gent received three Michelin stars for its lighting plan.
In 2008, Gent obtained the 3rd place as “most authentic city worldwide” and in 2015 UK's Guardian highlighted Gent as “best European alternative city break”.
