Ghent Construction

We were thinking of using Ghent as our base city while traveling through Belgium. Please advise us about the city center construction, is it still going on ?If so, Would this forum advise us to stay in Brugge instead? Planning on a spring2012 visit. Thanks.

The construction is now concentrated in one point where they are building a new city hall (not town hall). This will go on for some time but it bothers less than it used too and you can navigate easily around it.

Maybe by spring 2012 the whole construction is done and you can enjoy the city even better.

IMO if you have your mind set on Gent, stick with it.

This image (18 aug) is interesting: flickr.com/photos/… It's the view from the Belfry Tower down to the construction site of the new park and event hall.

You can see that the roads around the construction site are accessable.

Enjoy your stay!

I visited your town about 15 years ago and loved every minute. Construction or not, I will return. Although I might stay away from the construction noise . Enjoy you city. Thanks for the update.

The only hotel real close to the construction site is the Novotel, so you may want to look elsewhere if you were thinking of staying there. Although construction only happens during the day and at night you should have no problems there neither. Then again by the time you come here, it may all be done or almost at least.
