Ostend

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. Ostend is in West Flanders Province. Put Ostend at the heart of your travel plans by using our Belgium tour planner.

Where to stay in Ostend

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.
