Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

We live in a house that was built during the thirties, but it has been renovated 2016. Only 15' away from the vibrant centre of Ghent by bike or tram. Ghent has just recently been elected as 7th on the list of ten cities in the world that one should visit (Lonely Planet) and we agree ;).

There is plenty to do in this both historical and young city: there are lots of cultural activities, nice museums, a big festival in summer with free concerts and a free street-theatre festival, there are plenty of nice little bars and restaurants, we live only 10 minutes from a nice natural reserve. We can definitely recommend the medieval castle, a boat tour, a walk in the natural reserve and a stop at one of the nice cafes which sell great pie.

And other than that, we only live half an hour away from the northsea with sand beaches, Bruges, Brussels, Antwerp, or you could even think of a day-trip to Paris or Amsterdam.

Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

Our neighborhood is a quarter of an hour away (by bike or tram) from the historical city centre. It has all kind of necessary supplies: supermarket, pharmacy, bakery, a fresh foods market on sundays... The Westerbegraafplaats and the Museum dr. Guislain in our street are both worth a visit.

Attractions

Our home exchange - places to go and things to do while staying in our home

The medieval castle, het Gravensteen, is worth a visit, as is het Huis van Alijn, the museum of things that (n)ever pass, to get a n idea of life in earlier decades. The STAM, the museum of Ghent is a beautiful museum about the history of Ghent. Of course you should go to the northsea, only an hour away, and pay a visit to Brussels, Bruges and Antwerp.
