Belle Epoque

Alfons Pieterslaan – Boulevard du Midi, or simply referred to as the Boulevard by the residents – in the Belle Époque district is a busy street that runs from the City Hall on Vindictivelaan all the way to Petit Paris. This street is primarily visited by people who live in Ostend and is a genuine treasure trove of concealed shops and hidden gems.

You will find the perfect wedding dress at Azzurro. Men’s fashion shop Herenmode Paul and Au nouveau chic are your best bet if you are looking for a fantastic outfit for him or her, respectively. And if it’s delicious home-made chocolate you’re craving, be sure to stop by Willems chocolate shop. Children will be spellbound at De Speelbij, which features primarily wooden toys. And be sure to visit De Ostensche Schatkiste: a veritable treasure trove, where you will find all sorts of items ranging from paintings to knick-knacks and from LPs to fossils: things that are sure to give your interior that special touch!
