Are you eager to really get to know the city of Jacob Artevelde? Are you fond of the different museums in Gent, do you feel like visiting its monuments or do you prefer a roundabout on the internal waterways of the city? In that case, the All-in City Card is an ideal solution for you!
The City Card Ghent is a profitable all-in entrance card that gives you access to all important monuments, museums and attractions in Ghent. You can also use it to make a guided tour by boat, or to travel by the city busses and trams of ‘De Lijn’ in Ghent. With tramline 1, the museum line as it were, you cross the historical inner city of Ghent and can easily reach the different museums and places of interest. You can also rent a bike for 1 day with the card or sail along with the “hop on hop off” water tram for one day (the latter solely from April 1st until November 1st, on Saturday and Sunday from 11.00 until 18.30)
With the City Card you can also inspect the restoration of the Lam Gods from nearby, both the tryptic and the panel which has been restored in the MSK, as well as the exposition in the ‘Caermersklooster’. The STAM, MSK, S.M.A.K., and Caermersklooster are accessible to wheelchair users, their attendants can visit the museum for free
Buying a City Card includes a handy little user guide which tells you where you need to be and how to reach it within the city of Ghent. All the information available at your fingertips.
To use this all-in packet you only pay 30 or 35 euro, depending on whether you want to discover the city for 48 or 72 hours. In the low season (November-March) you save almost € 15.00, in the high season over € 20. For children under the age of 12 most of the museums are free, so a City Card is unnecessary.
At every entrance the card is checked, except on tram and bus. Therefore you have to fill in a start date on the back of the card and show it to the driver.
