Train / Tram, Oostende: 29 reviews and 40 photos


The train station is located on the eastern edge of town right by the marina and the Vissers Kaai. Oostende's main center isn't big, so if you make a mistake like I did, and end up here by accident, you can take a quick tour in a couple hours. There are coin-operated lockers, which made it easy for me to drop off my bulky backpack and head out to explore.

The station itself is an attractive, early 20th century building which definitely has some Baroque influence, but I can't figure out the rest. Oostende is also the main hub for trams and other transportation to visit the rest of the Belgium coast. Taxis and buses line up right in front of the station.

There is also a nearby catamaran terminal for those who are headed across the channel toward Dover.
