Around 6km west of Ostend, the dunes and marshes of this extensive provincial reserve create a rare green gap between all the coast's apartment towers. If visiting both of its main attractions, the Atlantikwall and Anno 1465, it's cheaper to buy the combination ticket.
By public transport, take the Kusttram to ‘Domein Raversijde’. Reach the Atlantikwall via wooden steps leading south up the dune-side then follow the signs (around 150m). A footpath between the marshes takes around 10 minutes to Walraversijde, from which you can take bus 6 back to Ostend. By car the only parking is at Walraversijde.
Bring waterproofs and walking shoes.
