Bird watching, wild horses, other animals, specific plants in this dunes landscape close by the sea. You can also book guided tours. Till the opening of the new Zwin Nature Park in Summer 2016, the access... More

We had a nice bike riding an also a nice walk trough the Zwin. It's wonderful watching all kinds of birds an other animals. Pure nature just to recommend doing it.You just have to take care of the so called "Sports Biker " which are passing by without respecting other slower bike riders.They are not biking to see the nature.

We saw Het Zwin by bike. It is very pretty and offers relaxing scenery and an easy bike ride (although I wish the bike lanes were wider- it was busy!). Nice to see the animals and birds.

Checked this place online and it was highly recommendable to see it's nature's best. True enough. Very nice at it's Nature's best. However, construction is being done on the property and we had limited access around the area. Het Zwin is being expanded and it seems it will be a better place to go to. Nevertheless, we walked around the... More

It is amazing place for sea, beaches, beautiful people and their city. You can come from Brussels or Antwerp by train to get down at Knokke or Ostende station. From there you can take sea side tram to go to city or beaches. You can go to Fort Napolean at Ostende and then can come to Knokke also. Here you... More

If you are in Knokke and you are not going to the beach or shopping and you are looking for a nice peace of nature, the zwin is a good alternative. They tried to reintroduce animals in that area, which makes it a nice place for children as well. It's bicycle- and jogging friendly area.

If you want to be near the sea and enjoy the nature do not miss this nature park. The reserve for coastal animals can be discovered by foot or by bike and is magnificent
