Drink, food and shopping

Enjoy the goodlife in Ghent: eat, drink and shop


Ghent is a great place to eat out or go to the pub or a coffee bar. No wonder a lot of creative chefs are drawn to the city. Consult the overview of restaurants, coffee bars, pubs, and speciality businesses

For groceries you can go to one of the many supermarkets. Or why not go to one of the many markets? There is one every day and on Sundaymorning you can visit no less than six!

But there is much more... Surf to get an overview of shopping areas, gift and souvenir shops, fashion stores and much more. Ghent has the largest pedestrian shopping area in Flanders.

Most shops are closed on Sundays (unless it is a special Sunday Shopping Day). Hairdressers are closed on Mondays.
