On May 24, 1874, the first horse-drawn tram rode out in Ghent, between Ghent-Zuid and the Dampoort. Today, 150 years later, the tram is an indispensable part of the Ghent cityscape. Reason enough to celebrate the trams of the past and present. We will do this for two days, on Saturday, May 18, and Sunday, May 19, in the historic center of Ghent.
