Congress has started
we're having a great time
Because Lonely Planet has called our city “Europe’s best kept secret” and a must see destination, and more recently “a city small enough to feel cosy but big enough to stay vibrant”.
Because National Geographic Traveler Magazine has listed our city as the most authentic historic city in the world and full of life.
Because you must witness with your own eyes what Napoleon and the mysterious thief of “the Just Judges” panel already knew: The Mystic Lamb really is key to European art history.
Because Ghent is at the crossroads of the most important inland waterways in Flanders.
Because the city comes to life again after sunset.
And of course because you like to get off the beaten track.
