the programme

DAY 1

Arrival in Ghent (train from Brussels airport or Brussels midi station for Eurostar).

Meet the group and your travel ambassador at the apartment.

It is now time to start this Belgian weekend with its delicacies and go for a traditional ‘frituur’. Belgians love going to this place, order fries, a special sauce and a burger, sausage, meatballs or any other type of meat you wish. Don’t think gourmet food here but authentic Belgian style takeaway. But one promise, once you try, you will only want more! 

Accommodation: Central Apartment

 

DAY 2

Today you will start visiting this incredible city. The tour starts with what Belgium is really known for: chocolate! During a 2h guided tour, you will get to taste 7 different sweets and chocolates with a passionate guide and learn more about the city. This is a chocoholic dream tour and is done in a fun and entertaining way.

 

In the afternoon you will get to discover Ghent from the water and see another side of it. In a private speed boat, you will go through the canals and rivers and contemplate the beautiful architecture of the city. The boat will then go further to reach a bigger part of the river where it will be able to unleash its power for an exciting time!

 

After this good doses of adrenaline, the visit continues to the medieval part of the city: the castle! This important landmark has a turbulent past and a complex social and political history. It is the only remaining castle in Flanders with a moat and defence system. During this visit, you will have a full overview of the heraldic culture of the 12th century and the castle even has a torture room. This is something you cannot miss during your visit to the city.

Accommodation: Central Apartment
