Travel & Accommodation:
Belgium has two main airports: Brussels –Zaventem and Brussels South- Charleroi.
Travelling from the airports towards Gent is possible by taxi, but rather expensive (+/- 100 euro).
As an alternative you can choose to take the train from Brussels-Zaventem. Brussels airport has his own train station located below the terminal (basement level-1) where you can easily take the train to Ghent. When leaving Gent and travelling towards the airport by train, you must keep your train ticket close at hand upon arrival at Brussels Airport. You will need to scan it at the automated access gates.
