The Sirene Cup is played at the impressive De Schorre sports park in Ostend, a few kilometres from the beach and city centre.

Oostende

Ostend (70,000 inhabitants) offers everything you expect from a bathing resort: sea, a beautiful beach and a boulevard that is bustling and busy because of the cafés and restaurants. In Ostend you can also find a whole range of shopping streets behind the boulevard. In short: Ostend is a bathing resort with an urban feel. 

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.
