  • Worth a visit. If you would like to visit the Atlantikwall with bunkers from the period 1914-1918 and 1940-1945, you should also go out for a whole day. With 2 hours you come to visit the medieval village of Walraversijde and the domain of Prince Charles.

  • This former royal estate (acquired by Leopold II in 1904), now a provincial domain, is nestled in a dunes. In addition to a few kilometers of walks (walking or cycling) in the natural area, it offers 2 tours of very different characters (with the possibility of a combined entrance ticket if both speak to you). One (Anno 1465) guides you through an archaeological site, to discover 4 reconstructed medieval fishermen's houses and an interactive museum. The other (Atlantikwall) takes you in the turbulent years of the 2 world wars to the site of the coastal fortifications developed by the Germans, integrated into what was called the Atlantic Wall, with its bunkers, observation posts, cannons ambushed pointed out to the sea, underground. You can also discover on this site the place where Prince Charles retired after his Regency, and lived there from 1950 to 1983, in a small fishing house.
