“Unusual architecture and BUSY”
Reviewed 27 January 2014

The station was very busy on our arrival and departure. It was reasonably clean. Signage was fair as we went out the wrong side for our hotel. Many vending machines and not so many shops. Compared to other railroad stations, the style is different and will be of interest to history or railroad fans.

The tram runs on the one side and will take you to many places in town.

“Enjoy delicious waffles while waiting for a train”
Reviewed 16 January 2014

Charming station I must say. Exactly the right type for a small old city. Just look at those ceilings! Nobody does such paintings in the transport hubs these days. Gives you a feeling of the previous decades if not centuries. Perhaps this station is not as beautiful as the one in Antwerp, but still...I enjoyed the view of the main hall. And travelling by train in Belgium is quite comfortable, so don't miss the opportunity.
Important note: On the right side from the main entrance there is a small shop. They have apple and raspberry waffles, where fruits are not on the top, but inside the waffle. Absolutely must-try!

“Not worth visiting.”
Reviewed 11 November 2013

It´s a railway station so if you are traveling by train you will pass there. If you are just staying in Ghent as a tourist it is not worth going there just to visit the building as there are much moor interesting historical buildings to visit close to the city center than the station.
