    The open-air museum Atlantic Wall.

    More than sixty bunkers and trenches, looking exactly as sixty years ago!
    In the dunes of the former estate of Prince Karel, a unique historical site of modern fortification has been preserved: sixty constructions dating from both World Wars, interconnected by two kilometers of trenches and galleries. This remarkable site has been extremely well preserved , as prince Karel systematically prevented every demolition attempt.

    Ensor Museum

    by Mahieu Written Aug 6, 2003

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This museum does not contain any works by the famous painter James Ensor. However, it is the house where he spent most of his productive years. After a restoration in the 1960's the house was opened to the public. On the first floor there is a documentation center and the second floor is occupied by the lounge workshop of James Ensor himself. Reproductions of Ensor's paintings can be seen here.
