Ostend is without a doubt the only Belgian seaside resort with metropolitan allure. Nowhere else along our coast is the combination of seaside and city more attractive than here.
Today, thanks to a series of successful events, the City by the Sea is conquering people's hearts. There is something special to experience in every season. That is exactly what makes Ostend so irresistible.
Museums, heritage, cultural and music offerings, shopping, trendy restaurants and excellent accommodation, and of course the sea and the beach: Ostend has it all!
Special attention is paid to the fascinating city history, rich cultural history and spatial evolution, supplemented with smart tips for a successful stay.
Three documented walks take you past sights, beautiful buildings and beautiful places. Two signposted bicycle tours explore the wider area, including the Historical Polders and the nature reserve of the Ostend Creeks.
This revised edition also mentions the wide range of activities via Tourism Ostend. More than 6.000 copies of this guide - now also in French - have been sold.
