Get yourself a ticket and go the full way from the french to dutch border. Stop in those less known places. It is all up to you. I just love to to this on a rainy day. Do pick your moment though can be crowded at some times.

The coastal tram is easy to use. It's clear that it is very popular with the residents of the area. Sometimes it can be quite crowded, but it's full of real people going about their regular lives. It stops at the Ostend railway station and will take you to any of the sights along the coast.

The tram is the longest coastal tram line in the world starting near the Dutch border and hugging the coast to France. It goes through many coastal towns and its great to hop on and off along the Belgian coast. If you only spend a short time in one place it does not deduct off your ticket day tickets are... More

Only managed to use this wonderful tram for a day going from Oostende to de Hahn and Blankenberg. As mentioned the 5 Euro day ticket is marvellous value and the scenes of Flanders fields from your cosy carriage are spectacular especially at sunset. Well planned, you can access beaches promenades and towns from the many stops dotted along the route.Pity... More

We took the tram a few years ago from Ostend to De Panne, and this year did Ostend, Blankenberge and Knokke. A great way to see the Belgian coast. With a day pass (5 euro), you could make as many stops as you want. No hassle with parking or one-way streets and enough stops along the way to go for... More

On just a five euro day ticket, this is an excellent way to see what Ostend and surrounding resorts (from Knocke in the north to Du Panne in the south) have to offer. Most of the southern journey from Ostend (terminus just behind the main railway station) to Du Panne runs between the sand dunes and the beach. Allow about... More

The first route was opened in 1885 and ran from Ostend to Nieuwpoort. There after, the other seaside resorts were opened one by one and joined together. In those 125 years, the coastal tram become an icon of De Panne to Knokke and today the tram has become a fact of daily life and tourism on the coast. You can... More
