Shopping Sundays in Ghent

HomeNewsShopping Sundays in Ghent

You want to visit our fair city and do some pleasant shopping, but you only have time on Sundays? Don't worry, if you book on the first Sunday of the month, you can still go on the Shopping Sunday.

For some years now, the first Sunday of each month has been the regular Shopping Sunday in Ghent. Shops and merchants then have the opportunity to open their business an extra day. Please note that the opening hours of the shops on that day may differ from the normal opening hours.

Feel free to get lost in Ghent's well-known shopping streets such as Veldstraat and Langemunt, but also explore the smaller boutiques in the surrounding and lesser-known streets such as Mageleinstraat, Burgstraat or Vlaanderenstraat. You will be surprised by quirky clothes shops, specialists in delicacies and arty or kitschy bric-a-brac.

You can also combine your shopping trip with the various markets that take place on Sunday mornings in the Ghent city centre.

More info on that can be found on our news page below

Coming by car? No problem, Ghent has several underground car parks where there is always a free spot! Our hotel also has a spacious private car park, and there is an easy tram connection to the centre. If you are a cyclist, you can rent bicycles from us, and of course you can also park your own bicycle with us. By bicycle, the city centre is a quarter of an hour’s cycling from Hotel Astoria.
