About the venue

Het Pand some years ago


'Het Pand’, a former Dominican monastery, is located in the historical centre of Ghent, on the banks of the river Leie. The oldest parts of this impressive building date from the 13th century. During five centuries it was extended and refashioned in different styles. ‘Het Pand’ houses some valuable collections, such as the rich ethnographical and archaeological collections of the University, the Museum for the History of Medicine, full-size photographs of paintings of Bruegel and Early Dutch Masters, and an interesting collection of stained glass.

Het Pand is located at Onderbergen, 1, in the immediate vicinity of ‘Sint-Michiels’- Church.
