Guided maritime walks through Ostend

Many tourists and visitors solely come to Ostend for the sea, the sand and the sun! Nevertheless, the former Queen of Seaside Resorts, now called City by the Sea, has a lot more to offer such as its many works of art, monuments and museums. In addition, the specific atmosphere of the harbour, the beach, the dunes and polders invites everyone to take part in a healthy nature walk or cycling trip. The association of guides Lange Nelle will provide you with a number of maritime arrangements. 

The Maritime Ostend walk, for instance, allows you to discover the various harbour and fishery activities by means of a “salty” walk at the western side of the harbour channel. Or you can opt for a specific walk on the East Bank, which focusses on fishing in general and the offshore wind farms. Finally, the new “à l’Ostendaise” walk invites you to discover the fishermen and Flemish fishery, i.e. its history, current challenges and future. Prepare to be amazed by the diversity of maritime Ostend!
