Favorite thing: Ostend is 'The City on the Sea'. It became popular just before the 1900's and a lot of the architecture reflects this. Ostend has literally everything - its own beaches, a world famous casino and racecourse, and outstanding shopping. Nightlife, as you would expect in a major resort and city, is excellent - many bars close when the last person has left and there is a selection of nightclubs and discotheques to choose from. You can get anywhere on the coast from here by tram, and Brugge is less than 15 minutes away by rail.

Favorite thing: At five minutes walk (well to be honest about everything is at 5 minutes walk!) you get to the harbour of the fishermen.
