Let our guides take you on a city tour of Ghent's artworks, alleys and cemeteries, or discover the city's artistic stories at your own pace with the printed walking guide.

Walk along with our guides

The history of the MSK is closely intertwined with the history of Ghent. Over the past 225 years, the museum collection has been exhibited in various places in the city, and Ghent's alleys and canals were sources of inspiration for the local artists who were born, received their training, or found their like-minded friends in the city. There are statues in the parks and many artists have their final resting place in the cemeteries.

During the festive year, we invite you into the artistic Ghent of past centuries. Our guides can take you through a part of the city or have you explore one of the cemeteries; simply indicate your preference when booking.

Guidebook

Can't you come with a group, or do you prefer to walk at your own pace? No problem! A printed walking guide has been published especially for the festive year so you can discover the stories behind the Ghent's facades for yourself.

The guidebook is on sale in the MSK shop and at the Visit Ghent Enquiry Desk.
