Huisje van Majutte

Reviewed By Ann V - Wolvertem, Belgium

It's an old fishermen's cottage from 250 years old.. Probably the oldest cottage of the Belgian coast. The museum is free, provided that you consume. The livingroom is 12p, gardin, 18p and you'll find the most cozy attic. There is a presentation on power point that shows the history of the cottage. Pieter Aspe, a crime writer, used the location for his book : "Ontmaskerd " The owners are real descendants of the original inhabitants. it is just around the corner of the Jose Hotel. It will bring you back in time. Enjoy

Belgium Pier

Reviewed By Gregory O

Leading from the Promenade out to sea for some 350 metres & culminating at the well known circular building which houses a restaurant/café bar & venue for the "Storms Expo" (sadly the exhibition was closed at the time of our visit).
Varied menú, written in Flemish, English & French. Children's menú. Vegetarian options available.
Staff, pleasant, polite & quite efficient. Flemish & English spoken (l imagine other European languages too).
Family, child friendly. Disabled friendly, dog friendly too.
Interior clean, tidy & spacious with a well stocked bar.
Nice outdoor Seating area beneath large parasols & behind glass screens, giving protection from the sea breeze.
Uninterrupted views back to Blankenberge & along the coastline.
WiFi.
This venue is available for promotions, pre-bookings etc.
Toilets are a little basic & could do with some refurbishment, but are fit for purpose. Disabled facilities available.
A pleasant structure to stroll along. Worth a visit.
Interest:
First cast iron pier dates back to 1894. In 1914 (start of World War l) it was destroyed by the Germans. In 1933 a new concrete pier was constructed. In 2003 the pier was completely reconstructed.

SEA LIFE Blankenberge

Reviewed By Frea D

It was fun to do but a bit pricey for what you get. You're done in 2 hours (if you're an animal lover like me, others would be out of the place in less time). The woman that guides the children and does the sea-lion show is not convincing enough to capture the children's attention.

Storms

Reviewed By 10Tottigol - Steenokkerzeel, Brabant, Belgium

Located in the unmissable pier of Blankenberge, the Storms exhibition is giving you an overview of the the worst natural disasters, with a special view on Belgium and The Netherlands. I find it somewhat incomplete and technically there are a few flaws. Although it is expensive to set up an exhibition of this kind, it takes a heavy toll on the visitors' pockets.

A bit of a let down if you traveled from far away as we did to see this, but if you happen to be in the area, it is worth the trip.

Het Witte Paard

De meest iconische revuetempel van Vlaanderen. De meer dan 80 jaar oude traditie van jaarlijkse zomershows aan de kust, blijft de bezoekers van deze unieke zaal jaar na jaar verwonderen. Maar sinds de grondige facelift en technische moderniseringen in 2017 heeft het Witte Paard veel meer voor u in petto dan enkel de klassieke revue.

Every summer, and this since 1938, the most successful variety theatre in Belgium opens it's doors in the Visserstraat of Blankenberge. This summer (2015) thirty shows are foreseen the last one on Monday September 7th. This year's theme is "Vegas" and several international actors will perform in a cocktail of sketches, music and acrobatic dance Performances. A real must see.
