Meet Hannelore!
This Belgian Beauty works for local government in Ghent. Together with her colleagues she was here to discover Groningen’s bicycle and urban strategy.
Groningen and Ghent have a lot in common, they are both ‘bicycle capitals’ and are home to a massive student population. We think Ghent is a bit more cosmopolitan: better restaurants, better shops and close to other major cities. Definitely worth wile a city trip. So we asked Hannelore to share with us her Ghent favorites.

Where to go in Ghent?

Parks & recreation
Hannelore: “Ghent has invested heavily in some of its parks. My favorites include BijgaardeparkARBEDpark and Sint-Baafskouterpark. Especially for small children, these are true paradises.”
