How to get to Ghent?

By Plane

From Brussels Airport

Ghent is approximately 45 minutes away from Brussels Airport, Belgium's national airport in Zaventem. The airport has its own railway station, Brussels-Airport-Zaventem, which offers a direct connection to Ghent. The railway station is situated beneath the airport and can be reached via the lifts and escalators in the arrivals hall.

The shuttle bus is also an easy way to reach Ghent. It runs about ten times back and forth between Brussels Airport and the Gent-Sint-Pieters Railway Station. There, you can take tram line 1 to the historic centre. 

From Brussels South Charleroi Airport

Brussels South Charleroi airport is at a 70 minutes’ drive from Ghent. A shuttle bus drives from the airport of Charleroi to Bruges via Ghent nine times a day. That makes Ghent more easily accessible for tourists who arrive at the airport of Charleroi for their visit to Flanders. The bus will take you to the railway station Gent-Sint-Pieters, from where you can take tram line 1 to the historic city centre.

By Train

Ghent has two railway stations: Gent-Sint-Pieters and Gent-Dampoort. There are train connections to the main station Gent-Sint-Pieters from all Belgian cities. There is also a direct line to this railway station from Zaventem airport.
