"The fish market.Visserskaai'..." Fish Market Tip by funkymama

Fish Market, Oostende: 6 reviews and 5 photos


Favorite thing: The fish market.
Visserskaai' is really a must. When coming from the railway station in the direction of the beach, one can first of all see the fisher-boats that wait here before their next trip begins. There is a large fisher harbor in Oostende. The most important part is the 'Fish-mine', a large fish market, where early in the morning the fresh North-Sea fish is sold to the fish retailers. They sell the fish on to the restaurants all over Belgium. The Oostende fishermen fish on the North Sea, as far as the waters around Iceland.
