This building (100m high) is the highest along the European coast. On the 34th floor there is a café , which offers you next to a drink or a snack a panoramic view.
An ultra-quick lift brings you to the 34th floor in just a few seconds. When the weather is clear, you can see Bruges, the Flemish inland and lots more from the terrace.
Just out of town on the way to Middelkerke there are several old guns and defensive installations. Put there by the Germans in WWII presumably to defend the harbour and coast.
An interesting visit.
