OOSTENDE – Fort Napoleon

Napoleon built this fort as a defence against a possible invasion from England. A British invasion never came, and the fort was completed only upon the fall of Napoleon in 1814. During the two world wars, the fort was used by the German military. After the liberation, however, it fell into disrepair. Since 1995, Fort Napoleon has been managed by ‘Erfgoed Vlaanderen’ that sees to the restoration and has turned it into a hospitable spot. Today you can not only discover the captivating past, but also enjoy the cultural activities, a relaxing visit to the bistro or a gourmet dinner in an exclusive setting. Fort Napoleon is one of the top venues in Oostende. It is situated next to the sea, with a superb terrace that offers a unique view of the port of Oostende and the city centre
