The Venue

De Bijloke is one of Belgium’s foremost classical, jazz and contemporary concert venues. It is located in a 13th century hall in the centre of Ghent. The stunning combination of the midieval and modern architecture and it’s secret gardens make it a must-see for visitors to Ghent. You won’t find a better way to spend your day than an afternoon visit to the STAM city museum (on the opposite side of the garden), having dinner in our Bistro and attend a concert by a world-renowed orchestra in the unique architectural setting of De Bijloke.
