You can also get there without navigation system, in different ways:
BY CAR – COMING FROM THE E17
The simplest way to reach Marcus Guitars & Basses is the following.
Take exit Sint-Niklaas Centrum, which will lead you to a roundabout with a tunnel underneath. Don’t go through the tunnel but keep to the right instead. On the roundabout you turn right, direction Beveren.
Follow this road until you reach a viaduct. Don’t drive over it but turn right, onto the ring way, leading to the railway station and the cinema complex Siniscoop. At the second traffic lights (you’ll see Siniscoop in front of you), turn right once more, under the railway bridge, direction Kieldrecht.
After a couple of hundred meters, at an intersection of five streets (Vijfstraten), you’ll notice traffic lights again. Here you take a 45° left turn, into Sparrenhofstraat. Keep driving straight ahead until you reach a T-shaped intersection. There, a right turn takes you into Godsschalkstraat.
Marcus Guitars & Basses has number 49. There is a double drive, but please don’t use the right half, as this belongs to my neighbour. If the left half is free: go ahead. If not, there is usually plenty of room on the side of the street. Thanks!
BY CAR – COMING FROM THE E34
Take exit 10: Sint-Gillis-Waas Vrasene Kieldrecht (N451). At the end of the exit follow direction Vrasene.
At the traffic lights near the church of Vrasene, drive straight ahead. After a few kilometers you’ll reach the town square of Nieuwkerken. There – traffic lights again – you take the road that slightly bends towards the right. (Here, if necessary, you can withdraw money from the ATM machine outside the Axa office on your left.)
Follow this street when it makes a 90° turn to the left. After a couple of hundred meters, you’ll see traffic lights again. Take a right turn here, and you’re in Godsschalkstraat. Drive another kilometer or so. Marcus Guitars & Basses is on the left hand side of the road (number 49).
BY BUS – COMING FROM THE RAILWAY STATION
Several buses drive in the direction of Marcus Guitars & Basses . Be warned: you’ll still need to walk another kilometer to get here! Check the timetables at www.delijn.be. Fill in like below:
ON FOOT – COMING FROM THE RAILWAY STATION
Expect a 20 to 25 minute walk. The road described here is the shortest, but part of it is unpaved. Take this into consideration when the weather is rainy.
Use the station’s back exit (Noordlaan) and take a right turn. At the end of the street turn right again, into Slachthuisstraat. After 20 meters or so, at the end of the street, turn left (Vijfstraten). Follow this street until you reach traffic lights, and at the green signal, walk straight on for another 50 meters. There, on your left, you’ll see Iepenstraat. This leads into Godsschalkwegel, and next into Olmenstraat. Turn left at the end of this one, and you’ll be in Godsschalkstraat.
Number 49 is on the left hand side of the street.
Please study the drawing next to these notes. Take it with you, if you’re uncertain.
