Oostende

Oostende (70,000 inhabitants) offers everything you would expect from a seaside town: an expanse of sea, a beautiful beach and a boulevard jam-packed with restaurants, cafés and hotels. In addition, the area behind the boulevard is riddled with shopping streets. In short: Oostende is a seaside town with an urban flair.  De Schorre sports park is a couple of kilometres away from the centre and the boulevard.      

Activities

Oostende Municipal Swimming Pool:

Is it too cold outside, or are you not keen on the salty seawater? Then head to the Oostende municipal swimming pool to cool off.

Fort Napoleon:

At the end of the 18th century, France annexed our provinces. Napoleon feared an English attack on the port of Oostende, so in 1811 he had an imposing fort built in the dunes: Fort Napoleon. It is now a museum, bistro and restaurant - it's really worth a visit.

School Gistel
School/Sportshall

The Sint-Godelievecollege is located on the main street at walking distance from the center of Gistel, a friendly town at eight kilometers from Ostend and sports park de Schorre. The college consists of various wings around a courtyard. In addition to the classrooms, the building houses a large auditorium for breakfast.
