Culture is another of St Ghislain’s strengths. The Ockegem Tower hosts a large number of exhibitions. The wonderful collections at the Train Space and Museum, not far from St Ghislain station, will fascinate you. Not forgetting the Memory Museum, with plenty of information about St Ghislain and its history. Throughout the year, St Ghislain puts on many festivals and events. For three weeks, the town’s streets are filled with dancing and singing during the World Folklore Festival. Uniquely in Wallonia, you can enjoy a ride in a helium balloon at St Ghislain, the pinnacle of the Ascension Day celebrations, which attract thousands of spectators. The Echo Festival, the Inter-Celtic Gathering and Neufmaison en Fête are some of the other highlights on the calendar.
