When do you wish to stay at Hotel Viking Oostende?
The more than 75 year old three-master Mercator is a former training ship for officers of the Belgian merchant navy. The ship is now a nautical museum that still regularly participates in major sailing events. In Ostend you can take several boat trips, for instance with the two-mast 20 meter sloop ?De Nele?, but other ships will take you along the Belgian coastline as well. If you want to fish for shrimp you can book a trip on the Crangon, a fully equipped traditional shrimp boat, from mid April to mid October. At the place where the first lighthouse of Ostend was located lies the Mariners' Monument, commemorating the numerous fishermen who died at sea.
