Do you want to spend an exciting, fun vacation with your kids in Ostend? There are so many year-round activities to keep you and the kids happy and active this summer and beyond. Here are our picks of the best, suitable for kids of all ages.
An old favourite where ever you are, the beach is an ideal day out in good weather. The beautiful white sandy beaches of Ostend will afford you plenty of time to relax and unwind. The kids can busy themselves playing in the water, flying kites and building sandcastles while the adults can read a book and catch a few rays. The beach is just 10-minutes from our front door and the best part is, it’s free!
If you get tired of the beach, or if the weather just isn’t what you expected, visit Goolfy Oostende our mini golf course right beside the beach. Mini-golf is fun for all of the family and even sullen teenagers will find it hard not to enjoy themselves! They offer a variety of indoor courses including one very interesting neon/blacklight course. They are reasonably priced at €7 per person and you could spend hours challenging each other and having your own mini-golf tournaments.
Another free activity which is good for all of the family is a trip to Leopold Park. This park opened in the 1800s and is a small peaceful area on the edge of a major European district. It has plenty of wide open green spaces to play games, go for family walks and bring a packed lunch for a picnic. While you’re there bring the family to see the world-famous floral clock which is adorned by an array of colourful blooms.
If you want to let your kids experience the stay-at-home summers that you probably enjoyed as a child, take them on a day trip to Sunparks De Haan aan Zee. Just 20 minutes away from us by car, you will enjoy a fun-filled family day which includes sports, water activities and plenty of open-air walks and cycles. Their aqua-zone has a swimming pool, a wave pool and water slides to entertain the little ones for hours.
To ensure you have the best trip possible, make sure you book a family suite at Leopold Hotel Ostend. We offer spacious and modern accommodation, comfortably sleeping up to four guests in our stylishly decorated family rooms. Our complimentary wi-fi will ensure the teens are entertained by social media and each of our rooms is equipped with a flat-screen tv complete with international TV channels so the little ones can watch cartoons while the adults take a well-deserved break. Your kids will feel right at home here.
