Tram from Main Station into City Centre

We have never been to Ghent and will be using the tram to get from the main station to our hotel and have a question how to know which is our stop,do the trams have some sort of notification system on them as to which is the next stop?

If you are asking which would be "your stop", it would help to mention which hotel you would be staying at! I don't recall whether Ghent trams have a visual indication of the next stop, but I don't remember one, or any announcements. It would therefore be up to you to identify where you are from the number of stops (7 if going to Korenmarkt on tram #1 direction Evergem/Wondelgem: http://www.delijn-aanpassingen.be//files/linefiles/2101/Haltelijst/2101S%202014.pdf?key=1421234886) and/or timing (for example it takes about 11 minutes to reach the Korenmarkt stop from St. Pieters on tram #1). If it's the next stop, Gravensteen, you can hardly miss the castle.

Thanks , yes I know which stop we need to get off at(Korenmarkt) but with never being there its more difficult than if you know the town visually.Ljubljana trams had information boards on each tram that gave next stop name and time which was really useful for tourists, its helpful I now know what to expect before we arrive.

Thanks Again

There are electronic information boards at tram stops. The name of the next stop is indicated inside the trams.
