Near the train station, there is an intriguing tourist attraction: The Amandine. Although it was February, the sun shined brightly. It seems to be an early spring! We decided to visit it. We first went down where the keel is located. Once down, we had all the information about the Amandine. Why is the Amandine so popular in Ostend? Very... More

As you exit the main train station in Ostend this massive trawler is probably one of the first sights that greets the eye. It's hard to miss and is in fact a museum dedicated to the seaman and trawler men who brave the dangerous conditions to bring home their catch. It's all in here to see from the galley,sleeping quarters,nets,equipment... More

The Amandine is a full size fishing trawler set in the promenade you can walk underneath and go round in side and in the fish hold, very interesting

Located at the entrance to the main railway station which itself is right on the sea front, this is a good display of an Ostende fishing boat. Entrance fee to go in and see around it is just 4 euro

The Amandine used to go to Iceland to fish. It is good to have a fishing boat for a museum, but I found it not too special, especially when compared to war ships. It is a good way to kill some time while waiting for a train or bus in the nearby stations. But of course you can also spend... More

Nice to sea a boat which reflects the heritage of the town. It's only a small boat but will easily ammuse for half an hour or so. Children will love it

I was here in summer and this was my idea as we did not have much time in Oostende. The price was ok, we stayed more than other people, we enjoyed every corner and read everything; we took many photos and then up on the deck for sailing! I'm happy I saw it and I learnt many things. The location... More

A small ship decked out in steam punk style that looks good on the outside, but did nothing fr us. Children will like it though.
