Why is Ghent the ideal starting point to visit the Paris Olympic Games?

Olympics Paris 2024

Ghent is located only 296 Km from Paris, a +/- 3 drive by car.
By train – a sustainable alternative – you can reach Paris in 2 hours. A lot of the planned sports activities are organised in Lille, which is only 73 km away from Ghent.

The pressure on hotels in Paris and Lille will be very high during the period of hosting the Olympics (26 July 2024 to 11 August 2024). Many accommodations will therefore quickly be fully booked. Ghent is the perfect alternative: from Ghent you can easily reach the Games, and stay at hotels at an affordable rate.
