City Hall - Opening reception - 20 April 2022

Address: Botermarkt 1, 9000, Ghent


This schizophrenic building is in two parts, as you can clearly see, making it a fascinating sight in political Ghent. The façade on the Hoogpoort side

shows you the flamboyant Late Gothic style that dates from the early 16th century. This style is in sharp contrast to the Renaissance style on the Botermarkt side. In this later wing (1559 -1618), you will see three-quarter Doric, Ionic and Corinthian columns and pilasters inspired by Italian palazzi.

Het Pand is one of the most prized and most frequently rented locations the University of Ghent has to offer. The location is in the heart of the city of Ghent on the banks of the river Leie, near the medieval port with the guildhalls as its remnants.

Het Pand is an old Dominican monastery located in the heart of the city on the banks of the river Leie, near the medieval port with the guildhalls as its remnants.
In 1201 a hospital was established next to Saint Michael's Chapel by Canon Utenhove. By 1225 the institute had become too small, and it was decided to construct a new one close to the Bijloke .By that time the first Dominicans had arrived in Ghent. By the agency of the then counts of Flanders, Ferdinand of Portugal and Johanna of Constantinople, the Dominicans were allocated the old hospital to serve as their new settlement.


The building is now housing the Congress Center of Ghent University, as well as several museum collections and exhibition rooms kept in the original state.
