Quiet, arty neighbourhood

Goeiemorgen! is located in the heart of the artists’ quarter, near Citadel Park and within walking distance of the historic city centre. Just 100 metres further and the Scheldt river slowly meanders back into town.

It’s the ideal starting point to explore the city, try out some retail therapy or plug into the cultural scene. After a busy day of sensory overload, the tranquillity of our garden, the park and the green riverbanks will be a welcome respite.
