    Trains

    by brianclark Written Jan 30, 2006

    Trains constantly run from Oostende, very clean and inexpensive. Brugge is only 14 minutes away and Brussels about 1 hour, when staying in Oostende I actually went to Brugge twice in the same day and was back in Oostende for 6pm in the evening !

    Trains and Trams

    All aboard! -- The Oostende train station

    Getting to Oostende is a snap. From England, you can take a boat, but chances are more likely that you'll be hopping a train. Oostende is the western terminus to the major line that runs from Brussels through Gent and Brugge. As a result, trains run all the time, allowing Belgians from all over the country the ability to spend a summer afternoon in Oostende and still make it home for bedtime.

    Around the corner from the massive train station is a tram station -- a light rail line runs from Oostende up and down the coast between the Dutch and French borders. This makes Oostende a perfect stop on the way to smaller resorts, such as De Haan.
