How to get there?

The public transport in the city is well organised, with a comprehensive network of trams and buses. A free map with the service in Ghent can be asked for at the so-called Lijnwinkels (the shops of transport company ‘De Lijn’), located at the main bus terminals: near Gent-Sint-Pieters railway station, near Korenmarkt and at Gent-Zuid (Ghent South). This map is also available at the Inquiry Desk Visit Gent. Buy your ticket in advance at the ‘Lijnwinkels’ or from the vending machine at the bus stop.
