In the port of Ostende you can admire a nice fish market with the freshest fish and seafood all mornings the fishermens are selling all sorts of fishs and excellent shrimps, a regal for the eyes and for the many restaurants on the East coast.

It took some time but the fischmarkt finally has a new and modern place on the fisherman's wharf. The blue roof representing a seawave is a landmark. The fresh fish is nicelly displayed end priced. It is definitely a new attraction for Ostende

"De Trap" is an institution in Ostend. Fisher boats used to arrive very early in the morning to sell their catch here. Fish weren't just fresh, they were alive. These days, the place has become just another tourist trap. The renovation, actually rebuilt, is just...More
