"Wapenplein" Wapenplein Tip by acemj

Wapenplein, Oostende: 5 reviews and 8 photos


Oostende's main square is the Wapenplein and it's located about halfway down the main shopping street, Kapellstraat. While it's not exactly a masterpiece, the square is large and pleasantly surrounded by cafes and restaurants. On the south side of the square is the enormous Feest-en-Kultuurpaleis (Festival and Culture Hall), which contains the town's main art museum, the Museum voor Schone Kunsten (Fine Arts Museum). I didn't visit the museum, but the collection includes some interested pieces by surrealist Paul Delvaux, whose work I enjoyed seeing in Brussels.
