About Ghent

Ghent lies at the confluence of the Rivers Scheldt and Leie. This riverside location has been a key factor in the history of the city, and it's a very fascinating history. In fact, there was a time when Ghent was one of the largest and wealthiest cities in all of Europe.

The town originally grew up around two abbeys founded in the 7th century. However, the importance of river transport in the medieval period saw Ghent bloom as a center of trade. By the 11th century, it became an independent city-state. By the 13th century, it rivaled Paris in size. Some of the city's most iconic buildings date back to this period of wealth.

Trade in textiles was a huge part of Ghent's prosperity. That, and the river passage to the North Sea, fueled the town's economic growth for centuries but the good times couldn't last forever. During the Belgian Revolution when the country fought for its independence from the Netherlands, Ghent lost its access to the sea and the economy collapsed. While unfortunate for those who had to live through it, the end result is a town that remains astonishingly well-preserved. Nowadays, the medieval heart of Ghent brings millions of tourists to this Belgian city every year.

In Ghent, you’ll find places to dine, castles to discover and day trips to enjoy from this marvelous city. With so much to see, carrying heavy bags or luggage from place to place will only slow you down. See as much as possible while here and do it without carrying heavy bags. Download the Bounce app, search luggage storage Ghent, and book a place to stow your stuff.

Top things to do in Ghent

A big part of Ghent's charm is the ancient buildings in the old town. But there's more to this vibrant city than just its history. You'll also find great shopping, restaurants, and everything you need to enjoy a fun vacation.

Activities and attractions in Ghent

Bruges

Ghent isn't the only well-preserved medieval town in the region. The city of Bruges lies a short train ride to the West of Ghent, and is also well worth exploring. The quiet canals and ancient Guildhalls make Bruges one of Europe's most popular tourist destinations, and you can easily lose yourself in the bars and restaurants of the old town for a day or longer.

Brussels

The capital of Belgium, Brussels, is also easy to reach from Ghent. This truly international city is famous for its chocolate, its waffles, and, of course, its beer. It's also the home of the country's Royal Palace and parliament, and several important institutions of the European Union. Brussels is a city where old meets new, and there's always something going on in the Belgian capital.

Tournai

The city of Tournai, with its well-preserved 12th-century cathedral, is a fascinating place to explore. Approximately an hour and a half from Ghent, the city is just as beautiful as this one but since it lies in the province of Wallonia, it has an entirely different vibe. Check out its lively Grand Place or take a stroll along the many canals to experience a different side of Belgian culture.

Gravensteen Castle

Admire the military technology of a bygone age at Gravensteen Castle. This imposing fortification was built in 1180 and was the home of the Counts of Flanders. Over the course of its long history, it has also been a prison, a currency mint, and a wool factory.

Gravensteen Castle bag policy

It isn’t stated if you can bring suitcases into the castle, but we’re sure that you’ll enjoy your visit more if you don’t have to drag around your bags. You can find luggage storage facilities in the local shops and businesses that we partner with, so there are plenty of baggage storage options for you to choose from.

Saint Bavo’s Cathedral

Belfry of Ghent

Take in a stunning view from the Ghent bell tower. The tallest belfry in the country, this tower is one of the three medieval towers that form the skyline of the city of Ghent. It's well worth climbing this nearly 300-foot tall tower to look over the city and surrounding countryside.

Belfry of Ghent bag policy

It’s not clear if bags are forbidden inside the belfry, but it’ll be quite a hassle to carry your belongings all the way up to the top. For a smooth climb to the top, store luggage and backpacks with us during your visit. 

Graslei

Soak up the atmosphere in the neighborhood of Graslei. This canal-side neighborhood is one of Ghent's most popular and is full of charming bars and restaurants. It’s the perfect place to grab a meal or a Belgian beer and admire the old buildings reflected in the rippling water.

Museum voor Schone Kunsten

Appreciate the diversity of Flemish art at the Fine Arts Museum, also known as the Museum voor Schone Kunsten. This museum contains paintings by Bosch, Van Dyck and Rubens, among other world-famous artists. The full history of Flemish art is represented in this stunning collection.

Uncle Babe’s

Uncle Babe’s has a casual and friendly environment with large glass windows and friendly staff. They mainly serve burgers made with quality meats, with a side of delicious wedge potatoes. They stay open pretty late into the night, so stop by to unwind after a long day of sightseeing.

Oak

Oak opened to the public in 2014 after Marcelo Ballardin decided to create his own restaurant. He’s innovative and talented, serving delicious meals made with fresh ingredients. The interior of Oak is modern and simple, welcoming guests who adore the contemporary dishes.

Like most dining options, Ghent restaurants typically don’t offer storage lockers for stowing your large bags or shopping purchases. Relax while you eat by storing your non-essentials before you stop to dine.
