Ghent has different names in different languages: "Gent" in Dutch, "Ghent" in English, and "Gand" in French. This is important to know if you are traveling from France (especially if you are buying your ticket in France), where they usually only use the French name "Gand."
The main train station in Ghent is called:
- "Gent-Sint-Pieters" in Dutch;
- "Ghent-Saint-Peter's" in English;
- "Gand-Saint-Pierre" in French.
Once you reach the station, you can take Tram Line 1 towards the city center (centrum).
If you are traveling internationally by train (most likely from Paris), you will get a better price (and an assured place) by buying your ticket in advance. The trip from Paris takes 2-2.5 hours depending on the route.
A common route from Paris is to change trains in Lille. If you go this way, be sure that you buy tickets that arrive in and depart from the same station in Lille. There are two stations in Lille, and you may be offered tickets that arrive in one station and depart from the other.
If you are flying to Brussels Airport, there is a train station in the airport and you can buy a ticket to Ghent on the spot.
Things to watch out for:
- Some trams in Ghent announce the stops, and some do not.
- "Genk" with a "k" is a different city entirely; do not go to Genk by mistake!
Paul will organize an outing to Bruges on Sunday, July 3.
