Centrally located at Ghent’s scenic Coupure, at walking distance from the historic town centre and the Saint-Pieters train station, Fred & Breakfast has been an ideal, homely base to explore Ghent’s centuries-old history and culture for tourists from all over the world since 2006.
For the more actively inclined, the “Watersportbaan” is nearby – Ghent’s green sports paradise with facilities for athletics, water sports as well as relaxed, child-friendly leisure. You will love strolling along the Coupure – which locals like to refer to as “Ghent’s beach trail” – which takes you to the world renowned Saint-Baaf’s Cathedral in minutes, as well as to many of Ghent’s restaurants, pubs and trendy shops. Ghent’s Saint-Pieters train station is conveniently nearby, perfect if you’re planning to visit Bruges, Antwerp, Brussels or other parts of Belgium while based in Ghent. Fred & Breakfast, housed in 2 interconnected historic houses right at the Coupure, has recently been entirely renovated, and offers 4 comfortable, colourfully decorated rooms with views onto the scenic Coupure. Fred & Breakfast is a member of Ghent’s official tourist association – De Gilde der Gentse Gastenkamers – and has been awarded in the category “Comfort” by Flanders’ tourism association.
