City by the Sea

Known as the City by the Sea, Ostend represents not only a seaside resort, but also a destination for history lovers. Its harbor draws crowds in the summertime, when tourists flock to its shores to swim in the North Sea and walk along its cafe-lined promenade. The beach town also hosts a number of festivals and events year-round. Take time to dig deeper than just the beachfront attractions, however. Ostend has several historical and cultural sites, including an open-air museum, which consists of sea defenses restored after World War II. Take stress off the schedule by using our Belgium driving holiday website.
