new Floraliën 2022! A bouquet of flowers in Gent

Discover the parks in the city of Ghent

From the abbey of Saint Peter to the abbey of Saint Bavo, discover the green areas of Ghent

More about this tour

You will be amazed by the numerous green sanctuaries that can be found in the highly urbanised city of Ghent. The tour takes you from abbey to abbey and from park to park. You will discover an orchard, a vineyard, green remnants of the former Ghent zoo, the park and former railway station ‘Gent Zuid’, the stillness of the garden of the medieval beguinage. The overgrown ruins of the abbey of Saint-Bavo will remind you of the life of monks in the middle ages.
