The former fish market
Although more than a decade ago the fish market moved to a brand-new block in the outer harbour to make room for the maritime theme park Seafront, the popular atmosphere around this old fishing dock has remained intact.
Maritime theme park
In Seafront you will discover all the secrets of the sea and you will become acquainted with the rich fishing history. The theme park provides a wealth of information about the evolution of the harbour of Zeebruges, the fishing industry, the origin of the North Sea,…
A unique expedition
Join the expedition and learn how the harbour is gradually taking shape. The auctioneer carries you back into days of yore with this typical call and shows you the rough life of a fisherman.
Join us on a mission with this steel colossus of 100 metres long and experience yourself how 75 crew members lived and worked on this seaborne bomb. Besides the submarine, you can visit the former lightship, West-Hinder.
Fun for kids
