Hire

Do you want a unique venue for a memorable party or congress? Historische Huizen Ghent has several historic and elegant rooms for hire. Our gardens, too, will charm you and give your event that little bit extra. 

 St Peter’s Abbey

Ghent Sint-Pietersplein, where greats such as Prince and Leonard Cohen have performed at dusk, houses the age-old St Peter’s Abbey. This is a spot which breathes out the past, with a historic cellar, impressive lofts, an attractive courtyard, and gorgeous south-facing gardens with a vineyard and fruit trees. This is the perfect place for your reception or festive meal. 


Both the rooms downstairs and the loft rooms are spacious and furnished, so they are available not only for festive occasions, but also for meetings, conferences, lectures, presentations, and information sessions. There are parking facilities in the Sint-Pietersplein underground car park.

Castle of the Counts

The Castle of the Counts makes the Joan Vandenhoute hall (for 99 people) available for meetings, performances, lectures, presentations, receptions, and dinners. This is always outside the castle’s opening times. If you want to tie the knot in the castle, we host weddings on Friday afternoons.
