    Fisherman

    A more than tradition at the belgian coastside - fishing on shrimps - with belgian horses - not seven horses in the sky - but in the sea !
    (lol - hit of a famous belgian group called "The Pebbles" in the sixties- a sign to Wal - in NZ :-)) ...

    Town Hall

    It was not until the end of the 19th century that 3 rich gentlemen discovered this beautiful place with a magnificent beach and dune landscape. They decided to create a coastal town in "Belle Epoque" style. This is what makes De Haan so unique. The town was totally created by one architect.

    typical house in De Haan

    Until 1885, "De Haan" was nothing more than a little fishing place of no meanings, with only a little custom-house and a few cottages for the fishermen.
