In Zebrastraat, historical architecture and contemporary art are combined to constitute a unique setting for all kinds of cultural events. The impressive contemporary art collection of the Liedts-Meesen Foundation is an important part of the site and is well worth a visit in its own right. https://visit.gent.be/en/see-do/zebrastraat

The airport has its own railway station, Brussels-Airport-Zaventem, which offers a direct connection to Ghent. The railway station is situated beneath the airport and can be reached via the lifts and escalators in the arrivals hall.
