Albert I Promenade, Oostende: 8 reviews and 11 photos


A walk along the Albert I Promenade is a must. After all, the fresh North Sea air is really why you came, right? Well, in my case, I came because I fell asleep on the train, but the fresh air was nice! The promenade was named after Belgium's third king, Albert I and stretches along the northern length of town. To the west of the Casino, the promenade is more or less right on top of the sea wall, while to the east, there is a long stretch of beach between the pedestrians and the wild water. I suggest keeping your eyes to the north toward the sea, since the buildings that line the promenade to the south are mostly non-descript apartment blocks.
