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.

With a daypass you can visit the whole Flemish coast, from La Panne to Knokke, and see the different cities and villages, which all have a different athmosphere.

The coastal tram along the western coast of Belgia is a relaxed and enjoyable ride. I went with a group of 7 from Norway and visited several towns and smaller villages along the line, mostly on a three carriage tramride. Sometimes on a full tram, or half-full or quarter-full, but containing friendly fellow passengers with a relaxed attitude. With just... More
