    train to oostende

    from brussels you have direct trains to oostende, where's the endstation. the journey from brussels takes you about an hour. price around 12 euro.

    in and around oostende a good transportation vehicle is the bike. the area is very flat so it's no problem to bike and you can come very far and have a stop wherever you want.
    there are also trams in oostende, but i never used these so i can't tell you much about them.

    from oostende harbour you can also take the hover speed ferry to and from dover/england

    Trains run hourly to and from Oostende station, right at the head of the Visserskaai, to Brussels, Antwerp and Kortrijk. There are occasional trains to Lille. The Brussels trains extend alternatively to and from Cologne and Eupen.

    Trains from Brugge take only 15 minutes, and run 3 times an hour. It takes 2 hours to get to Brugge from Brussels or Antwerp.
    Oostende is a rather small city, and you can easily walk from the train station, down the harbour, to the ocean in 5-10 minutes.

    Along the coast, there is a tram line from De Panne till Blankenberge.

    So you can walk for hours on the beach, from one town to another (each with a lot of terraces & pubs so you can take a break while walking).

    And if you want to go back, but you are too tired, just cross the beach and walk to the street to the next tram-stop and take the tram back to your point of departure.

    There are regular tram (direction De Panne or Knokke-Heist) and bus services from Oostende. The tram runs all along the Begian coast (about 65 km.).

    One of the entrance gates to Oostende is the railway station. This building in eclectic style with Baroque elements was constructed in 1910-1913.
