Mini Cruise details

Treat yourself to a short break with a difference with an Ostend Mini Cruise. Ostend, Belgium is a fun and lively city with lots to do!

Ostend is known as ‘The city by the sea’ and is only an hour from Brussels and a fifteen-minute train ride from Bruges. It’s a vibrant city rich in history, yet with a modern look and feel that welcomes tourists throughout the year.

As the city is famed for its glorious seaside areas, an Ostend Mini Cruise offers the perfect short break for summer holidaymakers. However, there is plenty to do, no matter what the weather, with lively nightlife, ample restaurants and a central shopping centre.

Something for shopaholics

Shopaholics can visit the shopping street centres of Adolf Buylstraat as well as Kapellestraat and get lost in the streets in-between hunting down souvenirs in quirky shops.

The open-air markets like Groentemarkt are ideal for bringing home those special gifts, with market days usually held on Thursday and Saturday morning and a small flower market held on Sundays.

Local bites in Ostend

Like many of the coastal resorts in Belgium the food options are varied, with much of the fresh seafood taken directly from the North Sea.

While the city doesn't boast any Michelin-starred restaurants, it does contain a number of gourmet gems that make the area a paradise for foodies.

Explore along Van Iseghemlaan or even Langestraat to hunt out some of the best restaurants, or head to one of the most popular spots, such as the family owned ‘t Landhuys, which is the oldest restaurant in Ostend. 

For great value seafood go on the main square, while those looking to blend in with the locals can dine alfresco in one of the brasseries near Bonenstraat and the popular Kadzandstraat. Don't forget to sample the Dover sole and shrimp croquettes to get a taste of the local delicacies.
