"The Casino" Albert I Promenade Tip by DrewV

Albert I Promenade, Oostende: 8 reviews and 11 photos

  The Casino, right on the beach
by DrewV

It's not Monte Carlo. In fact, when I was there, the great seaside Casino Kursaal was not even open for business. That said, it is certainly one of Oostende's larger landmarks; it's bulk sitting in the midst of the promenade, forcing pedestrians to walk around it and dividing the sketchy eastern side from the more upscale western side.

I've heard rumours that the casino will be remodeled and reopened in the near future. I have my doubts whether this will actually occur, since Belgium is after all Belgium, but if it does, it could be a step in the right direction of reclaiming Oostende's glory days.
