Great way to visit the coast but can get very busy

We used the coastal tram from Ostend to Koksijde as we had travelled to Blankenberge the previous day separately. It cost us 5 Euros each per day for unlimited travel (ticket... read more

There are many different tickets that you can buy such as group, single trip, day pass or period pass. Each trip, whether by bus or tram, is €1.40 regardless of distance and the... More

Not many countries can boast a tram that runs the width of it. This is a must if you want to visit anywhere along the coast and don't forget, the De Lijn passes are valid on all De Lijn transport in Belgium. So, get a 5 day pass here and you can still use it in Gent, for example. Contrary... More

The trams run all the way from De Panne to Knokke stopping at all the towns and attraction on the way. You can get a day ticket with unlimited travel for 5 Euro ( a bargain) They do get very crowded at times so you may not always get a seat.

Great, convenient route for sight-seeing in the area. Buying a ticket away from the centre was not very easy as we needed to find a shop... but luckily some friendly teenagers helped us out.

We have used the tram many times and always enjoy it. Remembering it is the longest tram journey in the world and had a serious history it runs from De Panne in the South to Knock in the North both places are well worth a visit. Remembering too that the tram hugs the coast for it entire trip there're many... More

Best way to travel in Ostend, leave the car alone, by tram you can go pretty much from the French border to the Dutch along the cost about 68 kilometres . Buy a day ticket for 5 euros and enjoy the view . Great way to travel between sea side towns.

The tram is a very cheap and efficient way to see the local coastline from Ostend. We only had time to make a trip to Blankenberg and back, but it was very enjoyable.
