Ghent main train Station (Gent-Sint-Pieters) is located 2,5 km from the city center. But you will not regret it because Ghent is a fresh, medieval and industrial city that will give everything your are looking for. The city center has not one, nor two, but three Cathedral in a 300 m horizontal square, a unique wonder in all Europe. Near the city center is the Gravensteen (Castle of the Counts), a marvelous castle from the middle ages.
