More about this tour
The Citadel Park is often called the Central Park of Ghent, and quite rightly. In this park in English landscape style you will find two beautiful water gardens, but also grottos and cascades, a rose garden, almost 800 impressive broad-leaved trees and many colourful flowerbeds. Wander along the wide alleys named after Ghent artists, architects and scientists, discover the intriguing statues and stop at the bandstand while listening to Viennese waltzes on your smartphone. Our guide will tell you all about the park and its future as a protected landscape.
