Gent Expat Events

Enjoy your Gent Expat Experience

the "proud city" of Gent opens its intercultural doors to you, beginning with its attractions such as the Graslei, the traditional celebration of Belgium’s Dynasty Day, to savoring a dish of pommes frites. The InterNations network is a place made for the Gent expat and offers insider tips and opportunities to ensure that you can make the most of your life as an expat in Belgium. Our members are looking forward to offer their advice and knowledge from experience when you come across one of the many questions about the life as an expatriate in Gent, from ʺCan anyone recommend their favourite brasserie?ʺ to ʺShould I study French or rather Dutch -- or even both?ʺ
