Pedal your way to some hidden gems


Ghent has lots of hidden gems outside of the historical centre. The best way to enjoy these? Hop on a bike and pedal your way to the outskirts of Ghent!

Let your hair wave in the wind and discover the prestigious architecture of the Miljoenenkwartier, the picturesque ruins of Saint Bavo's Abbey, one of Ghent's Unesco-listed beguinages, the medieval hospital site De Bijloke, the Arts quarter, the picturesque garden of St Peter's Abbey and so much more!

You should be comfortable to cycle 10 miles (16 km) at a leisurely pace (shorter trips are possible!) Of course there is ample time for sight-seeing.

Ghent is a bike-friendly city and this didn't escape the attention of The Daily Telegraph's journalist visiting Ghent in 2012: "I've heard of the Low Countries passion for two wheels, but quite how a city of 250, 000 inhabitants can collect this vast number of cycles is beyond me. "

*Biking is at your own risk. *
