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 a peek at our custom trip planner: Ostend and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.

Where to stay

For a room with a view, seek out accommodations along Ostend's waterfront. A hostel caters to those looking for a more economical place to rest for the night. If your budget is more flexible, try a large hotel or cozy bed and breakfast with easy access to the beach. Because Ostend is a small city, the price range doesn't fluctuate much according to location, so prioritize based on proximity to the waterfront.
