Atlantic Wall Museum, Ostend
(4.7/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
Admire the preserved World War I and II fortifications in their original condition at Atlantic Wall Museum. The Atlantic wall was a defense system built mostly by the Nazis during World War II to protect against the Allied forces. The museum's portion of the wall includes 2 km (1.24 mi) of trenches and 60 bunkers. Exhibits include World War II propaganda, dioramas, and photographs, as well as a cinema that screens documentaries. There are also activities for children including a treasure hunt through the museum. Be prepared for a lot of walking, as this museum covers a lot of ground, and be sure to bring an umbrella rain is in the forecase, as many of the museum's focal elements are outdoors.

  • Very interesting. Too much to process everything thoroughly. Beautiful both inside and out. The House of Prince Charles is in authentic condition! The defensive nests of WWI and WWII are really bother.

  • If you have time, you can visit the military museum. An interesting Museum, you can walk to the trenches, imbued with the atmosphere, see different weapons. In general I liked!

  • the Atlantic wall restored (even the sound of the sirens!), exciting, we believe, if you should choose an activity in Ostend, is this one... good for good walkers and no strollers (entrenched camps were not provided for...)
