    The construction of a new container terminal (FCT) in the new western outer port has been of great importance for the future expansion of the port. Zeebrugge is after all one of the few ports in Western Europe that can receive the biggest container vessels (the + 4000 TEU) generation

    Sand Sculptures

    by chicabonita Updated Sep 23, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you will be in Belgium before 7 September 2003 don't miss this years festival otherwise you have to wait one year for the next one :-)

    The only reason I went to Zeebrugge was this festival. After I saw sand sculputres in Berlin I'm fascinated by them! Thanks to all the VT members (Luchonda) who already have tips about Zeebrugge and the festival due to them I heard about it for the first time.

    Please see my travelogue for some more pictures - Thanks

    For me the only thing to complain about is the entrance fee of EUR 9. It is quite much but anyway I guess I have to put it again on my next years holiday planning schedule!

    Guess it would also be amazing and funny to distroy all the figures after the show is over ...

    As I understand the ice sculpture had their premiere this year.

    But what I understand from the Flamish newpaper artical hanging on the tent somebodies had intentionally destroyed the maschine or something else which was responsible for the right temperature in the tent ...

    On the photo you see the only rest of the ice sculptures. What a pitty!!!

    sand sculpture festival with 2002's motto: THE MYSTERY OF ATLANTIS.
    it's enormous to see this sculptures, built out of sand. you can't believe it, if you've never seen it.

    the giant sand sculpture that is being built by 75 international sand artists with the aid of 9 million kilograms of sand.
    the whole sand sculpture is 80 metres (± 262 feet) long and 60 metres (± 197 feet) wide. the highest point is formed by the 14 metres (± 46 feet) high summit, comparable to an apartment building of more than four storeys high!
    ...you see, it really is unbelievable.

    Sail Brugge

    For the fourth time, Zeebrugge received tall sailing ships that still ply the oceans. It was a great opportunity to visit these ships. More pics are available in my travelogue.

    This statue is the most beautiful unknown art I ever wandered upon a three sided face staring up in rapture at God, it's in the back of a church on the bike trail.
