The journey between Ostend and Eupen is regular and perfectly comfortable. One of the busiest segments of the route is between Bruges and Brussels, a trip that takes just over an hour. The trains are fast, and allow you to see parts of the Belgian countryside that you wouldn't otherwise see if travelling by plane. Most of the trains operating on this route have two tiers, so sit on the top deck for the best views.
Ghent (or Gent) is a city in the Flemish region of Belgium. The medieval core of the city is well preserved, and the city's centre is car-free, making it an ideal city to walk around. There are plenty of attractions within the city, including the Saint Bavo Cathedral and the Museum of Fine Arts.
There are five train stations within the city of Ghent, with frequent links to Brussels. Within the city itself, there is a dedicated tram and bus system. Public transport and walking is the best way to visit the city, as the centre is pedestrianised.
