Accommodation

 
 

WHERE TO STAY AND HOW TO GET AROUND?

 

Ghent is a very popular city for tourism and the Tourist Information Office tells us that hotel bookings for the Spring 2014 must be made quickly.

The offer of hotels and B&Bs is large and varied. Most hotels are located in the historic centre.

The conversation of members, the Congress and the festivities will all take place at the same venue: Kunstencentrum Vooruit, Sint-Pietersnieuwstraat 23, 9000 Ghent (See the location on google maps).

This beautiful place is easily accessible from the historic centre. On foot, it will take you between 10 and 25 minutes. Otherwise, you may take a bus, tram or a taxi to ‘ZUID’. The ‘ZUID’ is one of the main hubs for taxis and public transport, and is only a few minutes’ walk from the VOORUIT.

Please find below a list of hotels. On the website of the city of Ghent town you will find a larger list:
