For just €5 each (tickets available from the tourist information office beside the casino - and don't forget to put them into the machine at the entrance to the tram), we were able to travel from Ostend to De Panne and back, getting off to explore the various centres in between (though it has to be said that the coast...

purchased a day ticket and travelled from De Haan, to De Panne in the South, then back along the length of the coast, stopping off for beers and snacks at regular intervals until we reached the Northern end of the line. Unfortunately an overhead cable came down and we had to return to De Haan by bus, a great day... More

We bought a 3-day ticket from the ticket office and it was only 10 euros each and proved great value. Trams run every 10 minutes and get extremely busy. We travelled on around 7 occasions over the three days and only got a seat twice. Very efficient and great way to get along the coast.

Loving trams, loving narrow gauge rail - that a must to be visited. A day pass gor 5€ allows all day long travel, which in summer time can be ideally combined with the reast at the sea cost.

This tram is a good way to travel, it covers many places along the coast. You can buy a day ticket which enables "Hop on Hop Off" or just a ticket to where you want to go. The ticket clerks at the Ostend stop are all very helpful. The tram travels almost to the French boarder one way and almost... More

We had to go from the main station to the open museum. Buying a ticket on the tram wasn't possible, so we got off and tried to find where, and it was inside a building. Once on the train, after 15 minutes of riding, when we wanted to get off, we just stood and waited for the tram to stop,... More

It's cheap and an easy way to go along the coast. I was expecting to get a nice view of the coastline. Unfortunately, the coast seems to consist mostly of buildings, but there are a view scenic villages to visit and walk along the coast.
