Sint-Amandsberg (Dutch pronunciation: [ˌsɪnt ɑˈmɑntsˌbɛr(ə)x]; French: Mont-Saint-Amand) is a sub-municipality of the city of Ghent located in the province of East Flanders, Flemish Region, Belgium. The municipality of Sint-Amandsberg was formed in 1872, when it was detached from the municipality of Oostakker.[1] In 1876 and 1900, parts of the original municipality were already annexed to Ghent.[2] On 1 January 1977, the municipality of Sint-Amandsberg was merged into Ghent.[3]

It is served by the Bus and train station of Gent Dampoort on the Ghent Antwerp NMBS/SNCB line.

During the First World War, on 7 June 1915, the German airschip LZ37 crashed after being destroyed by Reginald Warneford. A street was named Reginald Warnefordstraat on the spot where the airship crashed.
