Oostende Travel GuideEdit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
The nightlife in the Langestraat is the best of the whole Belgian coast. There is a new Irish pub and plenty of other bars of all kinds.
But Oostende has more to offer than that. James Ensor's name and fame are closely linked to that of Ostende. Both his house and the Provincial Museum of Modern Art (PMMK) have very interesting exhibitions on his work and life.
If you want to get around a bit, there is a very nice streetcar running from Knokke (north of Oostende) to De Panne, near the French border.
In the "bosje", a large park close to the train station, you can rent bikes for free.
