Getting there

By Bike

Plan your cycling route easily with the City of Ghent’s free cycling map or its online cycling route planner. You can pick up the cycling map free of charge at the Stadswinkel, at all bike repair points of De Fietsambassade Gent and at the Mobility Company. The map shows you the main cycling routes as well as additional routes.

By Tram From Gent-Sint-Pieters

  • Tram 1, destination Wondelgem / Evergem. Get off at the Gravensteen stop. Walk along the Geldmunt until it changes into the Lange Steenstraat (follow the bend to the right). On your right you will see Kunsthal Gent.
  • Tram 4, destination Muide (Gentbrugge Moscou - UZ). Get off at stop ‘Lange Steenstraat’.

By Taxi

All Ghent taxi companies that offer electrical transportation can be found on www.elektrischetaxis.be. Electrical taxis follow the same rate, curb air pollution and offer the same level of comfort as regular taxis. Help keep our Ghent air clean!

By Car

Kunsthal Gent is located in a car-free area. The Lange Steenstraat is not located in the car-free area, but it is adjacent to it.

To improve air quality, Ghent’s inner city (the area within the ring road) will become a low-emission zone (LEZ) on 1 January 2020. Only vehicles that meet the conditions for admission will be allowed into this zone. Avoid being fined and check your vehicle before coming to Ghent.

For parking your car we recommend the following: Coming from the E40 or E17, take the Ghent-Centre exit and follow the P-route to Parking Vrijdagmarkt. In this car park you can park your car for a fee and you are not far from Kunsthal Gent.

Prefer not to drive into the city centre? Then use the free Park&Ride parking zones on the outskirts of the city and come to the museum by public transport. The closest with a connection to public transport are P+R Galveston (€), P+R Muide and P+R Weba/Decathlon. More information on public transport from the P+R-zones and a map.

By Coach

In Ghent, coaches can let passengers board and disembark at Gent-Dampoort station and at the Bijlokesite (Godshuizenlaan). From there, the city centre can easily be reached on foot.

Coaches can stop for 30 minutes (free of charge) on the Godshuizenlaan and on the Bijlokekaai. The Dampoort car park offers longer parking periods. Coaches can park for free on the Yachtdreef, where there is no limited parking time. All information about coaches and accessibility for tourists can be found in the Coach Plan.
