A visit to Oostende is not complete without a visit to the Provincial Domain of Raversijde.
One moment you will find yourself in the Middle Ages, the next shivers will run down your spine in the trenches of the unique open-air Atlantikwall museum!
NO MORE WAR.....a visit to the impressive Atlantikwal war museum will make this statement more meaningful than ever!
There are 60 constructions serving as silent witnesses to the horrors of the 2 World Wars.
They have been connected by 2 km. of trenches and underground passages.
Observation posts, staff bunkers, gun-mounts - you do not need a lot of imagination to hear the roar ofguns, the explosions of bombs and to see the mud splattering in the distance.
When you close your eyes you will hear swearing, screaming, moaning and you will think: no....no more WAR.......
Situated between Oostende and Middelkerke it covers an area of no less than 50 hectares.
Besides the archaeological site Walraversijde, the Atlantikwal and the Prince Charles Memorial, visitors can also go for walks in the park, which boasts beautiful ponds,.....or they can play sport in the recreational part or...relax in the caf?, near parking 1.
