Ghent is a safe place depending on where you go.

If you are at tourist places you will 100% be safe but other places outside the inner city are not that safe.

Some of these are: Brugse Poort, Nieuw Gent, Rabot, Dampoort etc.

Theres alot of drug/alcohol use and violence in these places, women tend to get raped quite a bit at night.

Good things is if you're a tourist you don't need to go to these places anyway so you probably won't encounter any of these problems.

I live in Gent and do not agree with the rate. I'm a woman and I do not feel safe in the city. Ghent is not safe even at night. I was born here and I'm 57. I saw it change, prices went up with the Euro and things got worse every day a bit more. A lot of poverty,a lot of homeless people, a lot of alcohol related issues,a lot of night noise, A lot of stank/odor. It used to be very safe here, now it's not anymore.
