Shopping in Ghent
Art city Ghent has a lot to offer visitors. In addition to various historic monuments, the city centre of Ghent also has a particularly attractive pedestrian shopping zone. The zone is concentrated around the Veldstraat, the Brabantdam and the Langemunt. A market is organised on one of the squares almost every day in Ghent. Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday morning, the Bij Sint-Jacobs square hosts a very popular flea market. As a hip college town, students in Ghent are quick to follow new trends. Today Ghent is a Mecca for vintage items. And all those students mean that there are lots of pavement cafés, pubs and snack bars.
