Ostend General Information

Ostend, or Oostende in Dutch, is a handsome city in West Flanders, Belgium. Home to 70,000 people, the dominant feature of Ostend and indeed, the trait that injects the city with so much inherent allure, is a fortuitous position on the North Sea coast. As a result, the Ostend waterfront and esplanade is a summer sanctuary for countless domestic and international tourists alike.

Though not quite on the Côte d'Opale or lovely La Manche coast, Ostend is a mere 55 km from Dunkerque and only 100 km from Calais. As such, the West Flanders gem has a lot of the same charisma that entices so many to the north of France every year. The small city was little more than a small village in the 13th>/sup> century when a market hall was built to foster commerce and trade. As a vital port throughout the late medieval period, Ostend was often the focal point of violent and bloody tug-of-war skirmishes for control of the North Sea waterway. Today, Ostend is a popular day trip from Gent, some 65 km away. The beach and seaside resort is also a short high-speed rail ride for Paris (1.5 hours) and Amsterdam (2 hours). Passenger ferry access from Ramsgate, England is another option.
