activities not to be missed during the Christmas holidays
1. Light tunnel
A fairy light tunnel covers the Adolf Buylstraat. That is special in itself. But more happens. The light sky gives a spectacular light show to music four times a day. With as many 232.500 lights you will not believe your eyes and ears when you experience this light show in Ostend! From 30 November at 16.45 hours, 17.45 hours, 18.45 hours and 19.45 hours.
2. New Year's dive
The New Year's Dive is not just for fools or warm-blooded people. Every year thousands of revelers and polar bears splash into the North Sea. "Just because it is nice to start the new year like that." Expect a mass warming up on the beach, hot drinks and snacks, a crazy dress-up party and yes… a refreshing dip in the sea. Spectators are also welcome! The New Year's Dive takes place on the beach of Ostend in front of the “Drie Gapers”, at the bronze equestrian statue of Leopold II on the Royal Galleries
3. Jamers Ensor
We recommend the Ensor exhibition for those who like it warmer. The man who lived, worked and buried in Ostend now also presents 26 of his works. Worldwide, museums, collectors and enthusiasts are interested in the groundbreaking art of James Ensor. Allow yourself to be amazed by dazzling nebulae above the sea, the wriggling chaos of The rebellious angels, a childish fairytale procession of a music chapel in the streets of Ostend, the spectacular Expulsion of Adam and Eve from the Earthly Paradise and the mysterious silence on the roofs Ostend houses. Until 16 June 2019 to visit in Mu.ZEE, Romestraat 11.
