Overpoort: "Students' Life" Gent Nightlife Tip by Mahieu

Gent Nightlife: 100 reviews and 139 photos

  I used to be a member of this students club!
by Mahieu

"De Overpoort" is the name of the street where most of the students hang out during all week. It's close to the St Pietersplein. I studied in Ghent and as a real student, you could find me more easily in this area than on the school benches ;-)
From late September until April, the street and pubs are really crowded and be prepared to see a lot of drunk people around!
