Ghent is located on the intersection of the two major European motorways E40 and E17 and is therefore directly connected to other major cities (Brussels, Bruges, Antwerp, Kortrijk). Road traffic is routed around the city on the two ring roads R40 and R4 because a large part of Ghent’s city center is car-free. If you come by car, follow the P-route which leads you straight into one of the underground car parks across the city. They all are open 24 hours a day and 7 days a week.
There are flights to Brussels (check Brussels Air, Ryanair, and Lufthansa). Ghent is a 45-minute drive from Brussels Airport. However, in order to avoid traffic jams and additional stress, we recommend taking the train on level - 1 of the terminal at the airport. There will be no less than 4 trains per hour that will take you from the airport to the train station in Ghent in an hour.
Ghent’s public transport is well organized, with a wide network of trams and buses. Flanders Expo is easily accessible by public transport. When leaving the Gent-Sint-Pieters railway station, you will find the tramline 1 stop on your left. This train will take you to Flanders Expo in less than 10 minutes. You can also use the buses 76, 77 and 78 to get there.Information Public Transport
