Pratical information for your travel and stay
The Ghent city centre is a low emission zone. Vehicles having a non-belgian number plate should register before entering the area! A compliance check for all other vehicles is strongly recommended.
Thagaste is set in the unique location of a historic monastery where Augustinian monks still live and work. The Augustinian Monastery is situated in the historic heart of Ghent, less than 5 minutes’ walk from the Cathedral, the UNESCO-protected Graslei, or the Belfry. Although the monastery is an oasis of peace, you are only a few steps away from the lively centre of the old historic city.
Thagaste represents the modern function of the monastery: a place where people meet, where they exchange ideas, and where they can simply enjoy being together, all nestled in a historic setting.
