C-Hotels Andromeda


Hotel Andromeda is situated in the heart of the queen of resorts. It is the ideal starting point for your museum visits, beach walks and culinary discovery. In winter as in summer, Ostend offers you a wealth of attractions and activities. Here our top 10 to help you make the most of your stay in our city.

The beach and seafront promenade

Enjoy the stunning sunsets, sunbathe on the beach in fine weather or cycle on a go-cart along the promenade. The beach and the sea offer something for everyone.

Domein Raversijde – Atlantic Wall

A section of the old defence line that was built by the Germans to defend the coastline from invasion lies well preserved in the dunes of Raversijde. Visit these fortifications dating from the First and Second World Wars.

Mu.ZEE – Art museum

Mu.ZEE is the museum of Belgian art. Walk through one art movement to another and learn about Belgian artists and their works from 1830 to the present day.

The new Western pier

This breakwater was built to extend access to the port and to protect Ostend’s city centre. The breakwater has to withstand waves as high as 4.8 metres. It also allows access to the public as a promenade at the end of which you can enjoy a fabulous panoramic view
of the sea and Ostend.

Church of St Peter and St Paul

This neo-gothic church in the centre of Ostend replaced the Church of St Peter that was destroyed by fire in 1896 leaving only the nearby brick tower (known as the Peperbusse – Pepper mill).

The new church was a prestige project of King Leopold II, who was so enthusiastic that many suspected he was responsible for the fire of the original church. Architect Louis Delacenserie from Bruges was inspired by the ‘ideal building plan’ such as that of the Cologne Cathedral and Votive Church in Vienna.

Fort Napoleon

In the dunes to the north of Ostend lies an impressive fort with a turbulent past. The infamous French general Napoleon ordered its construction to defend against attacks from the west but the fort has taken on many roles since.
