As a major tourist city, Ghent offers a wide range of hotels and lodgings.

In the coming weeks, we will publish a small list of recommended hotels on this page.


Aside from the conference, we warmly recommend you to explore the city of Ghent.

For more information on restaurants, musea, heritage sites, local bars to try the famous Belgian beers, shops for Belgian chocolate and other tourist attractions, you can visit the website of tourism Ghent.

Next to Ghent, you can always visit Antwerp, Bruges, Brussels ... or one of the other major cities of Belgium which are all well-connected through the Belgium train network.

The central train station in Ghent is 'Gent Sint-Pieters'. Information about the trains can be found on the website of the NMBS/Belgian trains.
